Why can’t the Sheriffs Office post my 5- &20-Day Eviction Summons?


This type of civil summons requires personal service by Florida State Statute and can lead to service delays if filed together. The landlord or agent can separate these actions, which in return can speed up the eviction process by allowing the 5-Day Eviction Summons to be posted after two (2) separate attempts within a 6-hour time frame. NOTE: Each individual case may be different and contacting someone for legal guidance may prove beneficial before exploring this option.
