Service Fees

The process to be served by either the Denton County Sheriff or Constables is to be paid for in advance of service and may be included with the court costs. We do not accept personal checks. If you are an attorney and you include the service fee with the filing fee check, the service of the process will be delayed for at least 21 days in order for verification your check has cleared the bank.
