Who is... And what is...The sheriff?

In Clark County, the Sheriff has the statutory duty of providing service of process in civil and criminal cases.

Who is... And what is... A deputy sheriff?

The Sheriff's Civil Process Section is comprised of Deputies who are full time peace officers commissioned by the Sheriff of Clark County.  The office of the Sheriff Civil Process Section acts as a messenger of the Courts in all civil matters.  Anything that is not a criminal act is a civil act.  We do not get involved in the disputes, but we serve the documents and keep the peace.

  • Temporary Protective Orders - Issued by District Court/Family Division, 601 N. Pecos, Las Vegas, NV
  • Stalking/Harassment Orders - Issued by Justice Court, 200 S. Third St., Las Vegas, NV

The above documents are forwarded to this section by either District Court/Family Division or Justice Court.

Any Changes to the information provided by the courts must be forwarded through the respective courts.  There is no charge for service of the above Orders issued through a Court.

Additional General Information
The Civil Section provides services in accordance with Nevada Revised Statues (NRS). Documents for service must be submitted with the appropriate instructions for service, filed stamps, seals and applicable fees. For questions regarding fees, instructions for service, delivery of documents or services provided, please call (702) 455-5400.

We do not validate or authenticate any documents.  We do not provide service outside of Clark County. Improperly prepared paperwork is not our responsibility. Service requests without proper paperwork, instructions or payment will be returned.  We do not accept cash payments, credit cards or personal checks.  Fee waivers issued outside of Nevada are not accepted.  

The Civil Section does not have access to court documents. This office does not store or retain any documents for safekeeping.  Please contact the court of jurisdiction to obtain any court documents or proofs of service.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, our current process service time is 6-8 weeks.  Should you require faster service, you may reach out to the appropriate Constable/Private Process Server for assistance.
