Rule 126. Fee for Execution of Process, Demand

TEXT

No sheriff or constable shall be compelled to execute any process in civil cases coming from any county other than the one in which he is an officer, unless the fees allowed him by law for the service of such process shall be paid in advance; except when affidavit is filed, as provided by law or these rules. The clerk issuing the process shall indorse thereon the words, "pauper oath filed," and sign his name officially below them; and the officer in whose hands such process is placed for service shall serve the same.
