A: I suggest that you speak with a lawyer.

Your question goes to a somewhat detailed procedure under Florida law and I suggest that getting a consultation with an attorney would be best in this instance.

A: If all you need is to figure out a way to provide notice to the Defendant, I'd suggest searching on google for "Process Servers in [Enter City], CA". Any one of those companies should be able to do the job. However, the question of selecting the right state in which to initiate the action is a little more complicated as well as various other issues for consideration. I'd strongly recommend reaching to an attorney.
