What happens between the first and second service attempt?

Between the first and second service attempts our servers will leave a letter on the subject's door explaining the process and the importance of getting in contact with us quickly. Then we attempt to contact the subject via every avenue you've provided (phone, text, email, and social media) to arrange a time for service as soon as possible.


After the second service attempt, if we have not heard back from the subject, it's a fairly safe assumption that the subject is avoiding service.  


Once this point is reached, Expedite will help you build your case against the subject for evading service and help you escalate the matter however you choose, whether that is more attempts at other locations or moving toward a "Service via Publication."
