We only serve process that is filed with a clerk of court or signed by a judge. Two copies of the summons, subpoena, garnishment, etc. should be included. One copy is to serve and the second copy is to be stamped with our service for a return. Mississippi law does not require our process to be notarized, therefore we do not notarize. If you would like the completed process returned to you, please include a self addressed stamped envelope, otherwise, completed process will be returned to the clerk of court where it was filed.

Process that needs to be served to an inmate at the Central MS Correctional Facility located at 3794 Hwy. 468 W., Pearl, MS 39208 should be sent to the Rankin County Sheriff's Office. Please make sure that the MS Dept. of Corrections number issued to the inmate is on the paper being served. The process papers will be sent back if the MDOC number is missing.
