All fees & mileage are payable in advance and are per party to be served. Unless otherwise noted, add mileage. You must send the proper type and quantity of process indicated, with the correct fees and mileage, with a letter of instruction in order for the papers to be processed. Omissions, errors, illegibility, untimeliness, etc., will prevent your papers from being docketed with our office. Full and complete addresses including zip codes are required. Acceptable forms of payment include attorney check or money order. For all mandates, e.g., executions, evictions & court orders involving enforcement activity, at least one original with a handwritten ink signature must be delivered to us (CPLR Art.52, generally; NYCRR 130-1; etc.). Documents with the court's raised seal are acceptable. Generally, where copies are required, such as for income and property executions, photocopies are sufficient; the filing party must determine whether clerk or attorney certified copies are required in other cases. The Sheriff's Office does not supply legal forms, nor can we complete them. Some courts may supply forms while some do not. There are several suppliers or publishers of legal forms and you should consult the various telephone directories.
