Civil Process Information


The Sheriff has a statutory responsibility for serving civil process papers. To accomplish this task, the Sheriff's Office has a Civil Process Unit. This unit consists of one Deputy and one clerical position. Their primary responsibility is the service of civil process papers, handle evictions, reposes vehicles and hold Sheriff’s sales on foreclosed property. Thousands of civil process papers are served annually.


Fees are waived only when papers for service are accompanied with signed court ordered waiver of fees for indigence. Fees are due and payable within thirty days of service or pre-payment may be required of the plaintiff for future service.


Any additional information including phone numbers, workplace and hours, vehicle, date of birth or physical descriptors included with the papers for service saves excessive fees and officers' time. One complete copy is needed for service upon the person or company and one cover sheet of the document is needed.


If after three attempts, service is unsuccessful, contact will be made with the plaintiff for further instructions. Otherwise attempts will be made until such a time as the serving deputy deems it is futile to continue or plaintiff indicates in a cover letter the maximum attempts to be made.


All sheriff sales are held on Wednesdays at 10:00 A.M. in the south main entrance of the Dunn County Judicial Center at 615 Stokke Parkway,  Menomonie, WI .
