The laine County Sheriff’s Office requires advance fees for service of most civil process. Payment may be made in cash or by check (made out to the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office). Credit card payment is not accepted. The fee for general service of documents is $60 per service and return. Other costs may include charges for moving and storage, bank search fees, towing, recording, publishing and postage. If we are unable to locate the person to be served, $15 of the general service fee will be returned with “Not-Found” documentation. Bank levies require an additional check made out to each back involved in the amount of $5. Towing, storage and Sheriff ‘s fees are added to the writ amount and increase the amount the debtor must pay to fully satisfy the case.
