Tracing people that you want to make contact with can be a drawn-out and frustrating process, especially if you're attempting to find them yourself.
There are a number of reasons why you might be looking to track someone down. Let’s take a look at some common scenarios and discuss how tracing services can help.
1. Missing persons
It can be disheartening when a friend or family member has gone missing and you find yourself unable to receive appropriate help from the relevant authorities. Even tools such as social media can prove useless if someone doesn't want to be found. Eclipse Legal Services use unique tracing techniques and processes to help you find a missing person, and we can even help facilitate the initial contact on your behalf.
2. Long-lost family members
Know that a long-lost family member is out there, but all of your searching efforts have so far drawn a blank? Eclipse Legal Services can trawl through government and legal records to help track down the person you’ve been seeking. Once they’ve been located, we leave the decision to make contact entirely up to you. However, we will happily help you reach out to them if you want us to.
In order to fully wrap up the financial elements of a will, all beneficiaries need to be located and made aware of anything they have been bequeathed. This can sometimes be tricky, particularly if they have moved overseas or haven't been in contact for several years. Utilising Eclipse Legal Services’ Tracing department is a great way of letting someone know that they have received an asset or sum of money in a will, and can help speed up the process for all parties.
Debtors can seem to disappear off the face of the earth – especially if they are late in owing you money. This can be frustrating for creditors, but if you don’t know where the debtor is, you won’t be able to take things any further in a bid to collect the amount owed. Eclipse Legal Services can help track down people who don't want to be found. We can also help serve legal documentation such as court summons, statutory demands and bankruptcy petitions through our process serving services.
