Have Court Papers Served

Only court certified documents may be served by the Sheriff’s Office. The fees for paper service are as follows:

*****The Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 2618 which increases the fees the sheriff is mandated to collect for the service of process.  The increase takes effect January 1, 2018.  Any papers received after this date will require the new fee which is highlighted in red below.

  • 1 or 2 persons, same case, same address ($36.00)     ($45.00)
  • More than 2 persons, same case, same address ($20.00 each, e.g. 3 persons=$60.00)     ($25.00 each, e.g. 3 persons $75.00) 

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)     no change
  • 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)     ($80.00)

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.).
