All services require that you complete a Sheriff’s Entry of Service form (3 part NCR Paper) which is available from any clerk of court within the Gwinnett County Judicial Circuit.

If you fail to complete this block properly, you are subject to paying an additional service fee. For out of State Service, a Civil Division employee will prepare a Sheriff’s Entry of Service Form.
