    You can attempt an online search and postal search. Check the Rules of Court if service can be by mail, then usually certified and regular mail. PO Box is okay if indicated in the Rules or instructions from Court if you are filling out forms yourself. If retaining a lawyer, he/she will handle the problem per the Court Rules.
