1. Q: I have a paper I want served on someone.  How soon will the paper be served?

Answer: We can not give you an exact date, however, you can check our website or call the Court Process Section in  approximately 7 to 10 working days to check on the status.

2. Q: My boy/girlfriend kicked me out of the house and changed the locks.  I want a deputy to go with me to get my personal property.

Answer: We do not send deputies to “stand by” while property is picked up without a court order from a judge.

 3. Q: I have an injunction against me that states I can get my property.  I need a deputy to go with me. 

Answer: You will need to contact the Court Process Section so a deputy can set up an appointment. 

4. Q:  How do I evict someone who is not paying his/her rent?

Answer:  The Florida Division of Consumer Services has a pamphlet available that provides basic guidelines.

5.  Q: I loaned money to a friend and they have not paid it back.  How can I make them pay me back?

Answer: You will need to consult with an attorney.  Members at the Sheriff’s Office can not give you legal advice.
