The Court Services Division is the heart of law enforcement and is best summarized by the first duty of the Sheriff that is listed in the Code of Alabama, which is, “To execute and return the process and orders of the courts of record of this state.”.

The Division does serve Out of State papers for a minimal fee (please contact our office for details). We do not serve Federal Court papers due to jurisdictional boundaries.

Court Services does strive to serve papers and execute processes (evictions) as quickly as possible but due to the volume of Court documents we process, it does take time. This Division serves approximately 250,000 civil processes and over 20,000 warrants of arrest annually.”
