Serving Warrants

The Sheriff’s Office Civil Division has two types of warrants (or body attachments): Criminal and Civil.

Civil Body Attachments

Civil body attachments are normally issued to defendants charged with Contempt of Court and are executed by the Civil Division Warrant Unit.

Civil body attachments are filed at the Daley Center, located at 50 W. Washington St., Room 701, in Chicago, IL.

A person filing to service a body attachment must present two certified copies of the order, a Warrant Unit information sheet, and pay $60.

Criminal Body Attachments

Criminal Body Attachments are issued from the State’s Attorney’s Office (28 N. Clark) and often originate from failure to pay court ordered child support.

The Child Support Enforcement Unit services criminal body attachments.
