All service fees will be paid prior to the service performed. Lake County Sheriff will accept a signed stamped court fee waiver where applicable. Each service performed and each individual served, generates a separate service fee. Service fees are set pursuant to California Government codes. Some services may have additional fees associated with them. The Civil Division will require a deposit of these estimated fees prior to service. All checks/money orders should be made out to Lake County Sheriff's Office (L.C.S.O.). Cash must be exact; the Sheriff's office does not make change. We do not accept bank or credit cards.
