I filed a civil suit in gwinnett county against a company & individuals. One of the defendants was served on 12/28 but the other (who is the registered agent) was not due to a wrong address given. I obtained this address from the Secretary of State for this person. The Sheriff's report back to me was that no such business name, suite or person exists at the place listed so i am searching again for an address. Can I have the summons & suit served to the secretary of state for this person or should I do service by publication? Has the clock started ticking on my case since 1 of the defendants was served? Thank you.
