Liz Stuchell, Civil Supervisor
Main Phone: (775) 328-3310
As mandated by state statute the Civil Section is responsible for the service of process in civil and criminal cases throughout Washoe County. Staff members process and serve thousands of court documents each year. A wide variety of papers are accepted, including protection orders, subpoenas, summons, writs of execution, evictions and other court orders.
To ensure proper processing of your documents please contact us directly if you are submitting any court orders, other than a bank levy or wage garnishment, directing the Washoe County Sheriff's Office to commence an action. These orders must contain certain language for us to execute in accordance with statute.
Documents for service must be submitted, in person, directly to the Civil Section or mailed to the office. We do not validate or authenticate any documents. Improperly prepared paperwork is not our responsibility. Service requests without proper payment or instructions will be returned. Read all instructions carefully on this site.
WE WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY ELECTRONICALLY TRANSMITTED DOCUMENTS OR REQUESTS FOR SERVICE THROUGH OUR WEBSITE.
