Solano County Sheriff's Office

CIVIL DIVISION
Introduction

The Sheriff is required to serve all civil process in the manner prescribed by law. The majority of procedures and laws governing the service and execution of civil process are covered in the California Code of Civil Procedure.

By statute the Civil Division provides many services to the public, which includes serving legal documents and enforcing court orders. The Civil Division collects and disburses money on levies, earning withholding orders, third party levies, till taps, automobile levies, and 8-hour keepers. The Civil Division also performs very complicated levies such as Writ of Attachments and Real Property levies.

On this website we have provided information guides and Sheriff's instructions forms for most types of civil process service and enforcement actions to better help inform you of our policies and procedures.

If you have any questions about the processes the Sheriff serves or if you want to fax us correspondence of any type, the appropriate telephone numbers are provided under the "How to Contact Us" section. Please be aware that this site is for information purposes only, not legal advice. Under no circumstances do we give legal advice.
