Civil Paper Service
Only court certified documents may be served by the Sheriff’s Office. The fees for paper service are as follows:
- 1 or 2 persons, same case, same address ($36.00)
- More than 2 persons, same case, same address ($20.00 each, e.g. 3 persons =$60.00)
Fees for service are payable by cash, business check, cashier’s check or money order only (NO PERSONAL CHECKS).
Exceptions to the standard fees above include:
- Writ of Garnishment ($25.00)
- Writ of Execution/Judgment of Restitution (final step of an eviction) ($70.00 plus fees based on the number of parties being evicted; call 541-474-5145 for calculation of exact cost)
The paperwork needs to be brought or mailed to our office along with the appropriate fee and as much information as possible about the party to be served (i.e. date of birth, daytime address, the best times to catch them at the provided address, etc.).
If you want a copy of the proof-of-service that we will send to the Court of Jurisdiction, please bring a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
