A Notice of Eviction is a document produced by a sheriff or marshal after a court has authorized a tenant's eviction. A marshal or a sheriff may send the notice by mail, deliver it in person, or post it on the tenant's door. The paper says "NOTICE OF EVICTION" at the top and includes the name of the court, the marshal or sheriff's contact information, a Docket Number, and an Index Number.
