Turn around time depends on how quickly our Civil Deputy can make contact with the recipient. Please provide as much information as possible about the recipient to include, correct phone number(s), address and even a working schedule. This information will aid us in getting your papers served as quickly as possible.

Fees for Service

In order for us to attempt service, in accordance with Maine Revised Statute Title 14 Section 702, we are requesting a retainer fee of $90.00 (In-State) & $90.00 (Out-of-State).   Any unused portion greater than $1.00 will be refunded or any additional charges will be billed to you.   We do not accept cash or personal checks.  Please use a money order or bank check made payable to “Somerset County Treasurer”.

We need one “original” document and one “copy” for each person being served.  Once service has been made, we will complete the Proof of Service on your Original(s) and mail them back to you.
