Sheriff Crook County, Oregon
The Civil Division is responsible for processing, preparing, serving and enforcing court orders and a variety of other documents issued by the courts. Examples of civil papers include: small claims, notices, evictions, civil subpoenas, writs of garnishments, restraining orders and foreclosures of real or personal property as ordered by the courts. The Civil Division also processes and serves criminal subpoenas for the District Attorney and the Juvenile Department.
Civil Division staff is trained in civil process to ensure that all court orders are processed in accordance with Oregon law and the Oregon Rules of Civil Procedure. After ensuring the papers are complete, a civil deputy delivers the documents to the person named on the paper, or if the law allows, to a responsible party.
Generally, there is a fee charged to process and serve civil papers. State law or county ordinance sets the fee that is charged for our services. Checks or Money Orders for fees should be made payable to Crook County Sheriff’s Office or CCSO.
