The Civil Processes Unit is responsible for booking, filing, serving and enforcing court orders and a variety of other documents issued by the court such as garnishments, evictions and foreclosures of real or personal property. The primary responsibility for our Civil personnel is the execution of civil processes and mandates of the court. This is accomplished through the service of income and property executions, notices and a variety of other civil/criminal summonses, processes and complaints. Civil process services must be done in strict compliance with Idaho Code. Timelines and accuracy in the service of legal documents, record keeping and returns to the Court are mandated by law. The service of Civil process is a primary responsibility of the Sheriff as defined in the Idaho Code. It is imperative that Civil deputies and office staff comply completely and precisely with the laws governing civil process.
The Civil Process Unit is under the command of Lt. Donia Ballard. The Civil Section serves approximately 14,800 civil documents every year and collects more than $2,600,000 pursuant to court orders.
