3. Serve the Complaint
Contact a constable to sheriff certified to provide service of process in the county where the defendant lives. Provide the server with the complaint and other documents that need to be served. Also provide the defendants home address and other known locations.
If the defendant is not located in Massachusetts, or his/her location is unknown you may have to serve by publication or use foreign service.
4. Return of Service
The sheriff or constable will provide you with a return of service showing that the defendant has been served. Return this to the clerk's office. Keep a copy.
