Sheriff's Office FAQ

No answers matched your search
Eviction Notices
  • Either you can serve one yourself to the tenant or you can have us, the Sheriff’s Office, serve it for you. If we serve the notice please do not have any date as to when you want them to vacate the premises by. Example-“Said tenant needs to be out by May 5th” instead put a number of days from the date the notice is served.  Example- “ Said tenant needs to vacate the premises 3 days after the notice is served.” The number of days you give the tenant is up to you.
  • We do not provide the Forms. You may print one off the internet or just write it out on a piece of paper.
  • They cost $15.00 to have served.
  • Please provide a self-addressed envelope when you bring the notice in for service and the correct number of copies. For example, if you have two tenants living at the property, we need 3 copies of the notice. One for an original that we will send back in the mail with a return of service on and one for each tenant.
  • If the outcome is that the tenant does not vacate the premises, you will need to go to district court and file a Writ of Execution or get an attorney.

Civil Process
