The Civil Division processes (receives, records, receipts, assigns, serves, and returns) all legal documents originated by Courts (Justice of the Peace, District, and Circuit Courts). This division is responsible for the service of all civil process, including but not limited to citations, writs, restraining orders, protective orders, subpoenas, summons, executions and order of sales. Our civil division is required by law to assist and conduct monthly sales of real property. These are held on the first Tuesday of each month between the hours of 10:00AM and 4:00PM at the courthouse in Conroe.
Typically our Civil Process Division Deputies serve papers Monday through Friday from 8am- 4pm. Please keep this in mind when providing information regarding the individual being served, the better information you provide for the deputies; the quicker an individual can be served. Also, if the deputies cannot serve a paper during their daily schedule, they can and will pass it on to evening shift deputies to make an attempt.
