You must have your documents completely and accurately filled out before delivering them for service. Should you have questions regarding legal procedures, you will have to contact an attorney.  Review your documents when you receive them from the Court to be sure they are accurate before bringing or mailing them to the Sheriff’s Office.   Be sure to provide the necessary copies.     .

The courts set specific time frames for document service.  Failure to present all of the copies in a timely fashion may preclude service.
