Civil Process: Eviciton (Lockout)

An eviction (lockout) takes place after a judgment is won by a plaintiff in an unlawful detainer case and an individual(s) need to be removed from the premises. The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office Deputies will not remove anyone from any residence without a Writ of Execution for Possession of Real Property. NOTE: If you have a Writ of Possession for Real Property granted out of Family Law Court, contact our office for more information.

If you have questions on how to initiate an eviction or want someone removed from a residence, you must call an attorney or the court. The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office Civil Unit does not give legal advice.
