Civil Processing


The installation Civil Process Section, LSSS-E, is the single point-of-contact for Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and tenant commands in civil process matters.

The Civil Process Section's mission is to arrange for the execution of arrest warrants, and the service of all subpoenas, writs of repossession, claims, and other civil processes as may be directed to military personnel, military dependents living aboard the installation, and DoD employees.

In the case of military personnel, this will be accomplished by notifying the designated representatives (Unit Legal Officer) of the Commanding Officer exercising special court-martial jurisdiction over the individual to whom the process is addressed. For DoD employees, the employee's immediate supervisor will be notified.

Service of civil process of all kinds, and arrest warrants and summons, will take place only at the Civil Process Section, Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, unless otherwise authorized by the Civil Process Officer.

Self-help repossession is not authorized aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Writs of Execution or voluntary repossession shall be administered only through the Civil Process section.

This section also oversees the Onslow County District Attorney's worthless check program; wherein service members may avoid arrest and court fees by prompt response (and payment) to notices of defaulted checks from the District Attorney.
