Civil Process

The term "serve" means to provide notice; in other words, everyone has the right to "due process" under the law. Everyone involved in a civil case must be provided with proper notice of every paper filed in that case. The Harrison County Sheriff's Department can serve papers in civil processes including but not limited to serving papers to individuals due to eviction, civil judgments, and divorce.
