The Civil Process Division is responsible for serving all civil paperwork coming from the courts including: civil summons, magistrate/small claims summons, domestic violence protection summons & orders, paternity and child support papers, summary ejectments, civil executions, subpoenas to appear and/or produce, etc. These civil papers tell the named person(s) of a court date or an action that must be taken. The division receives these papers from the North Carolina Courts, the Federal Courts, and Courts in other states. There are service fees connected with most of these papers and the Civil Process Officers are responsible for collecting these fees. Sometimes, the paper work directs that the Civil Process Officers seize money or property and then turn it over to the court or suitable person.
