Civil Fees

All fees for service must be paid when documents are delivered for processing. Check or money orders should be made payable to the “Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.”

Mileage Fees

If documents are issued or returnable to a Colorado court, use the total for in-state process. If documents are issued or returnable to a court in another state, use the total for out-of-state process.

Fees shown generally include the service of attached exhibits, complaints, motions, and answer forms. A subpoena would be considered a separate service and charged accordingly.
