Civil Process


Holmes County Sheriff's Department serves various papers in the civil process department. Only papers to be served within Holmes County will be accepted for service.  Service of papers is generally attempted within 3-5 business days after being received by our office. Restraining orders and injunctions will be served immediately. There is a fee of $35 for all papers to be served. Payment must be received before any action will be taken to serve the papers.

Our employees are not permitted to give you legal advice. If you have any questions regarding the paper you were served, generally there will be a listing of the attorney or party requesting the service in addition to a court date, time, and place. Our office usually knows very little about the papers served, simply because we try to minimize our involvement unless it is a criminal matter.

The Civil Department is open from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday - Friday. The department can be reached at (662) 834-1511. The mailing address is:
