SERVICE OF PRIVATE PROCESS/WRITS OF EXECUTION

The United States Marshals Service (USMS) for the District of Massachusetts does not serve private civil process ; they do serve court orders on behalf of the government of the United States as well as criminal process, admiralty, seizures, and In forma pauperis. Duly commissioned Constables and specialized units within each of the County Sheriff's Offices provide private civil process in Massachusetts.

Use Form B2650 to register the judgment and request a Writ of Execution from the state court. See Form B2650 for instructions.
