Skip Tracing for Legal Professionals

How can Legal Professionals and Law Firms benefit from our Skip Tracing services

Whether you are a Lawyer, Solicitor, Law Firm or a Legal Professional, you might need Skip Tracing for several reasons to assist in serving your clients effectively and fulfilling your legal obligations. 

Here are some key scenarios where Legal Professionals will benefit from using our professional Skip Tracing service.

 Serving Legal Documents

For legal processes to proceed, involved parties must be served with relevant legal documents. If a party is evasive or their whereabouts are unknown, a skip tracer can locate them to ensure they are served, enabling the legal process to continue.

Locating Witnesses

A law firm may need to find witnesses to provide testimony or depositions in a case. Witnesses can sometimes be hard to track down if they have moved or do not wish to be found, and a skip tracer can help locate them.

Asset Discovery

In cases involving judgments or settlements, law firms may need to locate assets belonging to a defendant or debtor. Skip tracers can identify hidden or obscured assets to ensure fair and enforceable legal outcomes.

Locating Former Tenants

For legal proceedings in real estate or property management, skip tracing can be used to locate former tenants who have left behind damages or unpaid rent, allowing the company to pursue recovery of these costs.

Background Checks

For both litigation and transactional matters, law firms may need detailed background information on parties involved. Skip Tracing Australia can uncover useful information that
informs case strategy or transaction decisions.

Class Action Lawsuits

When initiating or managing a class action lawsuit, law firms might need to locate potential class action members to inform them about the case and their rights.

Asset Recovery

In situations where a Client of a Law Firm needs to repossess property or other assets, skip tracing can locate the assets or the individuals holding them, especially if they are trying to avoid repossession.

Due Diligence

Law firms conduct due diligence in various contexts, such as business transactions, mergers, acquisitions, or investments. Skip tracing can help verify the identities and whereabouts of relevant parties or assets.

Fraud Investigations

If a company suspects fraud, such as identity theft, embezzlement, or insurance fraud, skip tracers can locate the individuals involved, gather evidence, and assist in the
resolution of these cases.

Locating Heirs or Beneficiaries

In estate law, it's often necessary to locate heirs or beneficiaries who may be unaware of their entitlements or have lost contact with the family. Skip tracers can find these
individuals so they can receive their inheritances.

Debt Recovery

Law firms representing creditors in debt recovery actions may use skip tracers to locate debtors who have absconded or hidden their assets to avoid repayment.

Family Law Cases

In cases of divorce, child custody, or child support, locating a party may be necessary for serving documents, enforcing court orders, or determining the party's financial

Skip Tracing Australia enables law firms to enhance their ability to achieve successful legal outcomes, serve their clients effectively,
and uphold their responsibilities within the legal system.

Why Outsource?

Outsourcing your skip tracing to professionals rather than using in-house resources can offer several advantages for a company, especially if the firm is not specialised in investigative or collection activities.

Cost Effectiveness

Establishing an in-house skip tracing operation can be costly, requiring investment in training, software, databases, and personnel. Outsourcing eliminates these overhead costs and converts fixed expenses into variable costs that only occur when services are needed.

utilisation. At Skip Tracing Australia, we aim to have your matter completed within 10 Business Days and often have results much sooner than this.


Skip tracers in Australia must adhere to legal and regulatory guidelines in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 and, quite often, the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009. Professional skip tracers are across these regulations and can ensure that
their methods are compliant, reducing the company's risk of legal issues. Our Agents also complete mandatory CPE and Mercantile Compliance training.
