If you need to find out how to contact the debtor, but do not already have this information, you might try some or all of the strategies listed below: 

  • Use the Internet and its search tools, including white pages, reverse look-up, etc. 
  • Check with the county assessor to see if the debtor, debtor's spouse, or the debtor's domestic partner owns real property. Some county assessors will confirm if a debtor owns real property over the phone. Click this link to find a local tax assessor. Opens new window
  • Search the county clerk's records to find out if the debtor has a fictitious business name statement on file with an address. 
  • Check with the court to see if there are any other lawsuits filed against the debtor, the debtor's spouse, or the debtor's domestic partner and see if an address is listed in that file.
