This probably depends on the state. In most states, there will be a fee for filing the documentation with the court and a judge sign off on the subpoena order. Then you would have it serves. In the majority of cases must be served by the sheriff's office and the sheriff's office will charge a fee for this. In other cases, this can be served by a disinterested third party who will sign "under penalty of perjury" that they have delivered the subpoena. In addition to this, you will have to return to the person who has been summoned to the court for the miles driven, parking fees and, often, a charge for time at rates determined by the county. If you win your case, you may be able to force the losing party to pay all these expenses.
