The Civil Section is responsible, as mandated by state statute, to provide the service of process in civil and criminal cases, throughout Washoe County.  Staff members process and serve thousands of court documents each year.  A wide variety of papers are accepted, including protection orders, subpoenas, summons, writs of execution, evictions and other court orders.  A service fee is required so please review the fee schedule.

Please contact us for instructions and service fees.

Documents for service can be brought directly to the Civil Section or mailed to the office.

We will not accept any electronically transmitted paperwork including facsimiles.
