What are the fees for paperwork to be served?

We require a $100 prepayment before papers will be served. The type of paper being served, the location of service and number of attempts will determine the total cost of fees to be charged. You will be billed if fees exceed this amount. Once the fees are paid in full, a return of service will be filed with the clerk of court. If we do not use the entire amount, we will mail a refund check to you. We currently accept cash, checks or credit & debit cards (there is a service fee for all credit & debit card transactions).
