Service Bailiffs
18th Floor
375 South High Street
Columbus, Ohio 43215


Service bailiffs assist litigants and attorneys by the efficient handling and delivery of court documents and the timely enforcement of judgment remedies. Service bailiffs serve summonses for civil, forcible entry and detainer, criminal, traffic, and judgment debtor cases, complaints, and subpoenas, and they enforce writs of restitution, replevin orders, executions, orders of attachment, and garnishments. Service bailiffs recover property from defendants and collect monetary awards. Personal property recovered is sold at bailiff's sales, subject to prior liens. Order of attachment property is seized and held by bailiff or plaintiff pending further order of the court. Bailiffs further enforce judgments by serving garnishment of wages and attachment of bank accounts. In replevin actions, property is seized and returned to the rightful owner.
