Re: serving a person in another state for a small claims

Service of process in a small claims action should be

by the Sheriff. The original summons, a copy of summons

and complaint (to be left with the defendant), and a

check in the amount of $5 payable to the Sheriff of

Cumberland County should be sent to: Sheriff of Cumberland

County, 131 Dick Street, Fayetteville, NC 28301.

In North Carolina, a small claims action must be brought in the county where the defendant resides. The sheriff of that county can also serve the complaint for a small fee.
