The Civil Process Unit is responsible for carrying out the duties imposed and mandated upon the Sheriff as an officer of the court system, as required by law, and as they pertain to:
• Forcible Entry and Detainer (FED) actions;
• Writs of Garnishment;
• Abuse Prevention Restraining Orders;
• Extraordinary Writs;
• Notice Processes;
• Writs of Execution;
• Property Sales; and,
• Criminal, Juvenile, and Civil Subpoena service.
The Public Civil Log Viewer is provided as a courtesy to citizens who have engaged the Lane County Sheriff’s office to serve civil process (Small Claims, garnishments, FED evictions, protection orders, custody papers, etc) on their behalf and displays only papers that have been served. The Log Viewer is updated every three hours, meaning papers may have been served that do not yet appear on the log. Additionally, our Civil Intake staff works Monday - Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., except legal holidays. Papers served after hours and on weekends will be updated the next business day.
If have a specific question regarding service, please contact us during our phone hours of Mon-Fri 10a.m. to 4 p.m. at 541-682-4156.
