To determine the mileage fee please utilize any common internet mapping program.

  • Starting address is District Court at 75 Court Street, Reno, NV
  • Enter the service address
  • Round up to the first whole number (ie: 6.1 miles rounds up to 7 miles)
  • Mileage is $2 per mile, not to exceed 10 miles. Multiply the number of miles times $2 (ie: 7 miles times $2 = $14).
  • Add the mileage to the base fee for the type of document to be served (see fee schedule). This is the total fee.

If the original paper and proof of service are to be returned to you, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. If the envelope is NOT provided, the paperwork and proof will be sent directly to the court.

NO REFUNDS will be issued.  There is no refund for an unsuccessful service.  We retain the fee for processing and due diligence for attempts made.  If you have any questions, please call the Civil Section at 775-328-3310.
