Civil Service


General Information

The Weld County Sheriff's Office, as part of a required function, serves civil process and precepts from the courts. Civil papers are generally court issued documents but may also pertain to small claims court summons or subpoenas. A fee for service is required along with a fee for the mileage, which varies. CORRECT PREPAYMENT IS REQUIRED.

Papers received with incorrect amounts may be subject to delay or return.

Staff members of the Weld County Sheriff's Office are not allowed to give legal advice.

Please call (970) 400-2823 or (970) 400-2829 for questions regarding fee amounts, civil process or sheriff sales.

**NOTE**

Please send a self-addressed, stamped envelope with your papers. If your affidavit of service requires each document to be listed or anything unique, please send the prepared affidavit as our affidavit is more general.

Civil Process Fees

If you have civil papers to be served with an Erie, Longmont or Brighton mailing address, please call us to verify that the address is in Weld County and not a neighboring county, such as Boulder, Larimer or Adams. This will enable us to direct you to the proper jurisdiction and help eliminate wasted trips and fees.

How do I get a civil stand by?

The Weld County Sheriff's Office won't conduct a civil standby without a court order. If the standby request is because you were served a Protection Order, contact law enforcement in the city where you need to get your belongings.

How do I get a Protection Order?

File paperwork from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Weld County Courthouse, 915 10th St. in Greeley. For more information, call (970) 475-2400.

Once a Protection Order has been issued by a judge, you can have any person over the age of 18 who isn't a party in the case serve the documents. The documents can also be served by the Weld County Sheriff's Office by paying the appropriate fees, if any.

The person(s) you are serving must live in Weld County and you must provide an address for service. We do not research or release information/addresses.
