The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Civil Unit processes and serves a wide range of court documents filed in Washington and other states.
In order to serve documents, Civil Unit staff will need to collect as much information as possible, including addresses, phone numbers, employment information and deadline for service. Papers cannot be served to post office boxes.
The Civil Unit will make several attempts at service based on how much time we have to serve and our ability to locate the person(s) you wish to have served. We do not guarantee service
We do not transfer custody of children except under court order (Writ of Habeas Corpus).
Please consult the "Fees" page for an estimation of cost of service.
