I am a landlord who is trying to evict two tenants, a husband and wife, for nonpayment of rent. The process server has tried for two weeks to serve them, but they do not answer the door or go outside. Finally the server was able to serve the husband at his place of work. My attorney says he is going ahead with the court date even though the wife-defendant was not served. Do you think this is wise? If I win the case, won't I only just be able to evict him? Also, what can one do if you cannot serve a defendant?
