The sheriffs of North Carolina are obligated by common law and statute to serve civil processes issued by the court(s). Accordingly, if you are in need of service of a civil process that has been properly issued by the court(s), visit, mail, or call (336-570-2652) the sheriff’s office to initiate service. Note that the fees below apply.
Also note that the service of out-of-state subpoenas must be served in accordance with N.C.G.S. § 1F-3; essentially, you must initiate that process/procedure by contacting the Alamance County Clerk of Superior Court to acquire a North Carolina subpoena equivalent to your out-of-state subpoena.
- North Carolina-issued Civil Processes: $30.00 service fee per defendant ($30 per individual to be served)
- Out-of-state-issued Civil Processes: $100.00 service fee per defendant ($100 per individual to be served)
