Thursday, January 3, 2013 —Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart is offering a new convenient way to check the delivery status of civil court summons, subpoenas and other civil court orders served through the Sheriff's Office.

A recently implemented Civil Process lookup feature is on the Sheriff's website, The link to the lookup page is on the right hand side of the webpage under the "Quick Links" section. Phone and in-person inquires to the Sheriff's Office Civil Division about the status of service will continue to be accepted.

The new online tool went on live in December. Users will need a case number or the Sheriff's number found on the requests receipt. The lookup process only works for those who have requested the Sheriff's Office to conduct the service.

In 2012, the Sheriff's Office took in approximately 370,000 requests for service.

After entering the information on the website, users will receive one of the following statuses about the court paperwork that is attempting to be served:

Served. The paperwork has been served

Pending. Service is being attempted.

Not Served. Service was unsuccessful and attempts are no longer being made.
