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.
Fees for service are payable by cash, business check, cashier’s check or money order only (NO PERSONAL CHECKS).
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.
