Cass County Civil Process Division

The Civil Process Division works with the court system to facilitate the timely, effective service of process. These Deputies also coordinate enforcement process with requesting parties and or attorneys. They also serve all process while maintaining an impartial position between all parties involved.

The following fees will be assessed to all court orders served by the Cass County Sheriff’s Office:


Beginning in 2024 the Sheriff’s Office will update our mileage fees to the attached rates. The updated “Mileage Fee” schedule for all civil process applies the current allowable mileage rate of .585 cents per mile, established December 2021 by the IRS. With these changes, we hope to become more efficient and recuperate all costs associated with civil process. We anticipate a grace period of 30 days in which we will except the old fees and bill accordingly. After that, all appropriate fees must accompany notices at time of receipt. We will only attempt out of county notices one time, which is the amount of fees collected, and Cass County court requests as many as three times, with additional trips charged back to the court of origin. Additionally, in accordance with 57.280(1) RSMo, we will require a $350 cost deposit plus service fee on all general executions of real or personal property. We will not attempt service until we have received the required deposit. This deposit may be in the form of a cashier’s check, money order, a check from a Circuit Clerk’s Office, or law firm check. We do not accept personal checks.

Thank you for your patience and assistance in this matter.

~ Sheriff Jeff Weber
