Frequently Asked Questions Regarding State Marshals
*taken from the state website - see the link below...

"What is a state marshal?
State marshals are appointed to work as independent contractors, as well as public officers with the status of peace officers, to make service of process in civil judicial and administrative proceedings and to do legal executions. State marshals are appointed by county and work within their county unless authorized by law to go to other counties, or to work statewide.
State marshals are not state employees.  State marshals are individuals engaged in the profession of performing critical functions necessary to the fair, efficient and effective administration of the judicial and administrative law system and the enforcement of judgments, and orders.  State marshals are an essential part of implementing the constitutional rights of individuals to access to courts and due remedies.

What do state marshals do?
State marshals are hired directly by citizens, attorneys, the state, businesses, or others who need to give notice to others of civil court proceedings, such as court and small claims actions, subpoenas, family court orders, or administrative proceedings, or other areas where civil process is needed.  State marshals are also hired to enforce the collection of judgments, or other court or administrative orders, in which money needs to be collected or property claimed.  Such actions include wage, bank and property executions, evictions and tax warrants.
State marshals are also assigned to courthouses throughout the state at specific times to accept restraining orders issued by the court in domestic matters.  State marshals are also empowered to execute civil capias warrants to take into custody individuals in child support matters."
