Increase in Civil Process Fees effective August 1, 2011

North Carolina House Bill 200 was voted on and approved on June 15, 2011. This Bill raised Sheriff’s Civil Process Service fees from $15 per person served per process to be served to $30 per person served per process to be served.  Make note that if you are having multiple types of process served at the exact same time, the charge will be $30 per person to be served. House Bill 642 made this change effective August 1, 2011.

SECTION 31.26.(d)  If House Bill 642 or other substantially similar legislation that requires a misdemeanant with a period of confinement of six months or less to serve the period in a local confinement facility becomes law, then G.S. 7A‑311(a) reads as rewritten:"(a)       In a civil action or special proceeding, except for actions brought under Chapter 50B of the General Statutes, the following fees and commissions shall be assessed, collected, and remitted to the county:(1)       a.         For each item of civil process served, including summons, subpoenas, notices, motions, orders, writs and pleadings, the sum of thirty dollars ($30.00). When two or more items of civil process are served simultaneously on one party, only one thirty dollar ($30.00) fee shall be charged.
