Hi, I live in Pinellas County and I was wondering how I can tell if the restraining order papers were served to the other party?

The other party lives in another state and I was told to fax the papers to the sherrifs department but I"m not sure if the papers got to him or not.

This is going to require a lot of follow up on your part. Because you are dealing with the Sheriff's department, your best bet is to call the Sheriff's department and ask if they have served the papers yet. If they have, ask them to supply you the proof.
