What happens if a person can't be found to be served?
If a person is being sued they have to be served papers. Then they appear in court on the day the papers say. But what if that person can’t be served papers because they can’t be found? If an attempt is made to show up at their house, work, etc and they don’t live/work at those places any longer, what happens? Let’s say they try to send the papers via certified mail but that person never signs for the mail and it’s returned to the sender. How would the person ever know they’re being sued and when the court date is? If they were to not show up in court, would there be a warrant for their arrest? Or would there just be a default judgement entered against them?
