Allen County Sheriff requires Notice of Acceptance to be included for civil process.

We have just learned that the Allen County Sheriff is requiring that the emailed Notice of Acceptance be attached to papers to be served through Sheriff's Civil Process. This is the email with a subject line that begins "Filing Accepted..."

We previously advised (in this blog post) that you should attach only the "Notice of Electronic Filing" that shows the fees selected during your initial filing to paperwork for Sheriff's offices.

As far as we know, the Allen County Sheriff is the only one currently asking for the Notice of Acceptance. However, because it is simple to provide both and easier to remember a consistent rule, we are now suggesting that you provide both the "Notice of Electronic Filing" and "Filing Accepted" emails to the Sheriff in all counties.
