Time of service of papers varies. Each paper has statute limits on how long we have to make attempts and how many we must make. The deputy that is assigned to your paper will make as many diligent attempts as necessary in order to achieve service or enough information regarding whether the to-be served party currently resides at the provided address or if they may be avoiding service.
Orange notification cards are left at their residence upon each attempt with the Civil Department phone number and a reference paper number. This gives the to-be served party the opportunity to make arrangements for service for delivery or to pick it up at the Sheriff’s Office. Each paper is considered important and will be treated with respect and diligence.
