What is a Due Diligence Report

A Due Diligence Report provides the court a statement, from the process server or sheriff that attempts were made to deliver legal documents. The statement provides details of the attempts made which can include the name of the server, dates attempted, times, circumstances, and the result as to why the documents have not been successfully delivered. It proves to the court that reasonable efforts have been made to serve the subject according to the state and local laws. The Diligence Report can be helpful when requesting the court for a new hearing date or to serve through publication. It can also be helpful to the serving party in determining if other services may be needed to effectively serve the documents; these services can include a Stakeout, Postal Search, Locate, or a Skiptrace.
