Checking Service Returns

The employees of the Civil Clerk's Office will not check service for any plaintiff or plaintiff's counsel. The files on the return docket for any particular day are available for review in the Civil docket review room (adjacent to the Civil counter) until 9:00 AM on the return date, or during regular office hours from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM any day prior to court. If service of process has not been made, the court has no jurisdiction to adjudicate the matter. Occasionally, a defendant may have received a mailed copy of the warrant and will appear in court without having been served. In these instances, the Court may request that the defendant sign a form voluntarily submitting to the jurisdiction of the Court.
