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.
