Forms to use if the defendant can’t be found for service 

Sometimes the plaintiff can’t find the defendant(s) to have them served, or believes that the defendant is trying to avoid service. The plaintiff must first make service attempts and use reasonable diligence to find the person, which means making a good effort.  If the plaintiff still can’t find/serve the defendant, they can ask the court for permission to use alternative service, by filing a motion and attaching evidence of service attempts.
