Tracing people

You may have good reason to want to trace a debtor, a former business or marital partner, a relative or an old friend. Possibly their contact details have simply been lost, they have moved house, changed jobs, married, even changed their name. Alternatively, there may a more serious cause, such as –

  • A troubling event within their family or place of work
  • A breakdown and withdrawal from family, friends and colleagues
  • Difficulties within their emotional, marital or business relationships
  • They need to escape their family or work responsibilities
  • Some irrational impulse to get away, when they really need help
  • Serious financial problems and a wish to avoid creditors

For example, if someone owes you money or you believe that you have been defrauded, you may need to trace one or more people so that you can seek legal redress. We can help you to locate them so that they can be served with the necessary court papers to ensure that you are properly compensated.

Tracing people can be difficult. Trying to find someone with whom you have lost contact is usually easier and less costly than trying to trace someone who does not wish to be found. If you can provide us with their full name, most recent address, and ideally their date of birth, we have a very good chance of tracing even that person.

Every situation is different, from simple and straightforward to complicated and problematic. We have access to specialised databases, but it helps our search if you can provide us with information which enables us to understand why someone has disappeared.

Whatever your reason for needing to trace someone, we may well be able to help. We have a high success rate in finding most people we are asked to trace.
