Writ of Possession

Writ of Possession

Previous step is the Forcible Entry & Detainer

3. Writ of Possession

When the Clerk of Court receives a ruling on a Forcible Entry & Detainer action in your favor, you will need to request that the Clerk issue a Writ of Possession to the Sheriff. IT WILL NOT BE DONE AUTOMATICALLY. The Sheriff's Office requires an advance deposit fee of $50.00.

The Sheriff's Office will be delivering a copy of the Writ along with a posting order stating the date of the eviction to the address of the defendant. We require that this be done at least some time during the day before the eviction. It is not necessary to serve this order on the defendant, as we will post it on the door if no one is available.

Next is the Day of the Eviction
