If the Sheriff Department served your tenant personally, then you can ask the court for past due rent, damages, late fees, etc.
If the tenant shows up to court, or answers the eviction complaint, you can ask the court for money due to you. If the tenant does not answer or show up, the court will only give you posession of the rental.
Why did you not have the tenant served at work for the eviction?
If tenant does not show in court, file new law suit and have tenant served at work.
With your being out of State, your best course of action is to have an 'Eviction Attorney' handle this.
