Skip Tracing Services in St. Louis

Locating Individuals Nationwide

Individuals involved in legal matters must be officially “served” with court papers explaining when, where, and why they must appear in court. Actually completing this process and legally serving papers can sometimes prove to be challenging, however, as individuals who know that they are likely to receive a court summons may attempt to evade being served.

With today's technology, people have the ability to change their address, disconnect their phone, change cell phone service providers, and other means of contact easily and quickly. Process servers use a method known as “skip tracing” to locate evasive individuals who must be served. Our team at Markell & Associates, Inc. is known for providing reliable and prompt skip tracing services to help you locate individuals anywhere across the country.

What Is Skip Tracing?

Skip tracing is the process of locating an individual's whereabouts for various reasons. Skip tracing tactics are used by bounty hunters, repossession agents, private investigators, lawyers, police, and other professionals to locate subjects whose location is not immediately known. Skip tracing is a constant need for legal counsel, financial institutions, and individuals who handle delinquent account collections.

What Information Can a Skip Tracing Provide?

Skip tracing involves collecting, analyzing, and verifying as much information as possible about a subject. While most skip tracers look to the internet to find an individual, social engineering and surveillance tactics such as calling known associates of the subject are often equally useful ways to locate and serve a person in hiding.

Some of the information that skip tracing can recover include:

  • Phone numbers
  • Criminal background checks
  • Job application data
  • Credit reports
  • Loan applications
  • Utility bill information
  • Search warrants
  • Courthouse records
  • Public tax information
  • Vehicle registration information
  • Social media accounts
  • Air travel histories

Skip tracing is very much like detective work, as it involves sifting through information for clues, understanding where and how to search for information, and following up on leads. For this reason, it can oftentimes be incredibly difficult for an average person to find someone who is making an effort to remain hidden.
