Civil Department

Civil Process Service
The Civil Department is charged with serving legal documents originating from the Superior Courts, Justice Courts, attorneys and private individuals. The Civil Department also assists citizens and attorneys in both pre-judgment and post-judgment remedies by executing on writs of execution, writs of restitution, writs of replevin, writs of garnishment, writs of attachment, etc.

Due to the nature of the court proceedings and procedures, deputies will only serve processes Monday–Friday during hours that are authorized by state statutes (excluding holidays). All processes will be served in accordance with Arizona Statutes and Arizona Rules of Civil procedures unless otherwise directed in writing by the court order (please allow 2-3 weeks for service).
