What Do Skip Tracing Companies Do?

So, what do skip tracing companies do? They find people. It’s not an easy job, but good skip tracers have the resources to track down almost anyone. Starting with high-powered databases, a good skip tracer knows how to read and manipulate the data in order to find almost anyone.

You may have a court-ordered judgment, or maybe it has been determined that someone owes you money. A lot of money. Or possibly you’re simply looking for an old classmate, missing relatives, an old boyfriend or friend, or someone who controls the assets you’re looking for. Bail jumpers? Lookout!

Maybe you’re an Attorney who really needs to find a witness to a crime.  Or one of your client’s has a big settlement coming their way and you cannot locate them. Serving subpoena’s to the proper individual always presents problems.

It seems that, lately, we’re doing a lot of “heir” searches for Attorneys. There’s a huge transfer of wealth going on in this country with the death of the baby-boomers, and attorneys need to find those long-lost relatives.

Skip tracing companies can take care of your needs in a professional, timely manner. Here at Skip Trace Pros, quite frankly, we over-deliver. The bottom line is – people need to find someone. A good Skip Tracing company takes care of it for an agreed upon price.

What Do We Do?

Our Skip Tracing Company, Skip Trace Pros, routinely provides the most up-to-date & hard-to-get information to Private Investigators and Process Servers who then resell it to Attorneys who then charge their clients. But we can find the person for you directly so you can save a ton of money.

Your Subject may have moved or they are in hiding.  Possibly in jail. We can find them and provide their address to you. Probable/possible phone numbers and email addresses are included whenever possible at no additional charge. We’re also known to supply some additional information that will greatly help you down the road.  No extra charge for that.

Most skip trace companies belong to a number of groups. The National Association of Private Process Servers (NAPPS), the National Association of Legal Investigators (NALI), and many other groups such as the California Association of Judgment Professionals (CAJP).

What Tools Do We Use?

Of course, we start with databases.  But not the kind of “People Finder” databases that you’re probably used to seeing on the internet. To be honest, those websites are our best advertisement.  Once people get tired of getting ripped off and receiving old, outdated information – they finally come to us.

We have access to the “Really Good Stuff.”  And, no, I’m not going to reveal our sources here.  Let’s just say that we’ve developed some pretty good resources over the last 15 years – and not just databases. Those of us in the industry are a pretty tight-knit group and are usually willing to share new sources and information.

How Does it Work?

We locate the person, speak to him or her personally (if necessary – have to be careful with this), to verify it’s the right person, and then call or email you back directly. We will not simply give you a list of people with the same names and have you call to find out which one it is. And, your Subject has no idea that we’re trying to find him or her.  We are real people doing this real time.

If for some reason we can’t find the person, there is no charge to you at all.  We don’t ask for the fee upfront and don’t even bill you until we find the information you’re looking for.  We do require payment before releasing the information but rest assured – if there’s ever anything wrong, we’ll refund your credit/debit card (we use PayPal), immediately.

Side Note: Please know that we have safeguards to protect against stalkers trying to locate someone. There are also some searches that we simply will not do. You can find out more about that here: Searches We Won’t Do.  It’s good protection for everyone. Let us help you find that missing person today.


You may or may not ever need a skip tracing company. Most people settle for simple letters or phone calls, but sometimes the amount owed to you can be substantial and you need some additional information. If you do need one – shop around for one in your general area.

Skip tracing companies can supply that need, and engaging with one can certainly help you collect on debt – or whatever your need may be. If you’re looking for a qualified skip tracer, check out Skip Trace Pros here for all of the details.
