Temporary Hours Of Operation
Due to the restrictions put in place by the King County Executive and Washington State Governor, reduced hours and services have been implemented. While this is a fluid situation, it is anticipated these restrictions will remain in place until King County has been approved to enter Phase 3 of the “Safe Start Washington” reopening plan. Please check back frequently for updates.
Our in-person hours of operation at the King County Courthouse Civil Unit and Sheriff’s Office Administration (W-116) lobby hours are 10:00am – 2:00pm (1000 - 1400 hours). During this time we are providing services in a way that ensures customers and employees are being kept safe.

The King County Sheriff’s Office generally will not be enforcing eviction orders in King County.
Any eviction orders received by the KCSO will be reviewed to determine if the order is based on waste, nuisance or commission of a crime. Such cases will be reviewed on an individual basis, to determine whether to proceed with the eviction.
