Automobile was damaged and needs repairs. Insurance is not paying full amount required to make me whole. I will be filing suite in California court. I need to serve a party that hit me in California but lives and owns business in Illinois.
Do I only pay the fee if the party is successfully served?
Do I find process server in Illinois or do I find a process server in Calif who then deals with finding a server in Illinois?
What is the typical cost for doing this?
The party I am suing is Owner/CEO of a business in Illinois, family member is President. Can the process server serve the party at work even if he isn't at work?
I also have a home address that he owns according to county records. Not sure if he lives there or rents it out. Not sure the best way to figure this out?
