The Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office Civil Process Section is responsible for preparing and providing service for writs, subpoenas, summons, and all other court orders to include; evictions, executions of foreclosures, sheriff sales and various court orders relative to property possessions and/or seizure according to the court.

In order to process papers for service we require two copies, one for service, and one for the return of service. A self-addressed stamped envelope is requested to send the return to you.

If an affidavit is required by your agency, please send the affidavit form along with the papers to be processed and served.

An invoice for the costs will be sent with the return of service. The fee will be determined by the cost of service and the mileage.

We also ask that you allow our agency plenty of time to process and serve any papers.

If you are a private citizen calling from out of state, we require payment up front, so please contact our office for the correct fee.
