My name is Brian Mayer. I'm an attorney practicing family law throughout Southern California. Today, I'm going to be answering the question of how to effectuate service on someone when you don't know where they are or how to get ahold of them. This situation often arises in family law cases, especially when someone is trying to get divorced and they haven't seen their spouse in months or even years. They don't know how to find them, so they go to the courthouse and file their petition to dissolve the marriage. However, they still need to serve the other side, and that's when things get tricky. The answer to this question is through something called service by publication. The rules for this process may vary slightly from state to state, so I will focus on how it works in California. Service by publication means that someone is considered legally served by running advertisements in a publication, such as a newspaper. First, you need to file your petition or motion. Then, you have to exercise due diligence in trying to locate the person who needs to be served. Due diligence means making every effort to find them. This includes looking for them at their last known address, calling any telephone numbers you have for them, reaching out to them by email if you have their address, and even asking family members or friends who might have information about their whereabouts. It's important to demonstrate to the court that you genuinely tried to find this person but were unsuccessful. Once you have exhausted all avenues in your search and can prove that you have exercised due diligence, you can proceed to court to request permission to serve by publication.

How to serve someone in california Form: What You Should Know
When the papers are served, the person serving the papers must give or send an official receipt to the person (who did not receive the papers) and the sheriff (or other person who served the papers) that shows that they have received them. WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW IN ORDER TO SERVICE LEGAL PAPERS IN CALIFORNIA (a) Notice of Claim must be served by the person who is suing. (b) If both plaintiffs (the person who is suing and the person who is suing in a different court) agree, they can each serve the notice on a third party. That is, the plaintiff may serve the notice on a third party who is not the defendant and the defendant may serve the notice on a third party who is not the plaintiff. The notice must include the title and address of the other party and the date of the claim against the person who is suing. In this situation the third party (for instance a lawyer) will have to take action to get the correct judgment or a new claim based on the legal theory underlying the claim. Each side will need to have a copy of the notice. After the other parties receive the papers, they cannot remove the papers from the sheriff (or any other service place) or destroy them; and the papers remain in the Sheriff's (or another service place) responsibility until the final court decision on the claim. The court may order someone to serve the papers if it agrees. This means that someone else will generally do this part, if they agree to do so. (d) A notice for filing is not a court order for filing the claim. The person who is suing is legally required to file any claim against the other party, but the person who is suing for an exemption for a fee or filing fee or filing fee is not legally required to file a claim in the process unit that filed the claim. (e) The other party cannot file a claim without a Court filing. (f) The person who is suing for other than an exemption for a fee cannot file a claim without an order of the court. (g) If you decide to not serve documents under California Business & Professions Code Section 835.40, the sheriff will file the papers themselves. You can ask the court for an order allowing you to serve your papers in another manner. (h) You can get an order allowing you to serve documents without giving a copy to anyone except your lawyer that is giving the service.
