  3. Summons and Complaint
  4. Dissolution documents
  5. Child Custody documents

There may be times when the Sheriff’s Civil Division cannot serve papers in the time requested.  In those instances please see the Sheriff’s Office for a current list of local private process servers.

Unless other arrangements have been made, payment in advance is required.
