Civil Division

Big summons pageThe Civil/Transport Division is responsible for serving civil papers, but is also responsible for transporting inmates to the Michigan Department of Corrections and picking up inmates from the Michigan Department of Corrections on writs back to either the 53rd District Court or the 44th Circuit Court. The Civil/Transport Division also transports inmates on Livingston County warrants from any one of Michigan's eighty-three counties.  For obvious security reasons, we cannot display our transport vehicles or discus our transport schedules.  Also, for security reasons inmates never know when they are to be transported or allowed to make phone calls prior to the transport.

The Civil duties of this division covers a wide range of court papers; a few examples are:
  • Summons and Complaints
  • Subpoenas
  • Small Claims
  • Garnishments


Sorry, we DO NOT serve Personal Protection Orders (PPO's)
