The Montgomery County Precinct 5 Civil Division’s primary responsibilities include but are not limited to processing legal documents within our jurisdiction that have been originated and ordered by the Courts (Justices of the Peace, District, and Circuit). Our deputies strive to skillfully serve all civil court documents including but not limited to citations, writs, restraining orders, protective orders, subpoenas, summons, executions and order of sales in an efficient and timely manner.
As a general policy; the Constable’s Office DOES NOT do civil stand-bys without a court order.
The Civil Process Deputies are committed to serving papers Monday through Friday from 8AM – 4PM. Please keep in mind when providing information regarding any individuals being served, the more adequate information you can provide; the quicker an individual can be served. If deputies cannot serve a paper during their daily schedule, they can and will pass it on to evening shift deputies to make an attempt. All civil papers are returned to the originating courts along with the Constables Return. When received, we are required by law to assist and conduct monthly sales of real property; these sales are held on the first Tuesday of each month between the hours of 10AM and 4PM on the steps at the Courthouse in Conroe; as well as, published for three consecutive weeks in the Montgomery County News prior to the sale.
