Temporary checks and credit cards are not accepted
Fees are based upon the type of document being served. Our office will retain a $20.00 non-service fee plus the mileage fees for papers that were attempted but not successfully served.
Please provide a cover letter detailing the following (the more details you provide to our office the better the chances are for successful service):

Restraining Orders take priority over all other types of service. This is due to the potential for injury related to these situations.
Restitution / Evictions are the second-highest priority of the Civil Division. These court orders are time-sensitive and have to be scheduled before they can be executed.
In addition to serving civil papers, the Civil Division is also required to seize both real and personal property. The property seized may be either returned to the owner or sold at a Sheriff’s Sale in order to satisfy the judgment of the court.
Writ of Restitution
