How to Become a Process Server in Massachusetts

Updated on

With a unique history and legal system dating back to the original thirteen colonies, becoming a process server in Massachusetts is not as simple as hanging out your single or passing an exam.

Service of process in Massachusetts is handled by constables appointed by each county. It is possible to become a constable without a specialized law enforcement background.

Each county maintains their own requirements and standards for appointment.

For an example, take a look at Boston’s constable application process.

While becoming a constable can be tricky, the benefits include expanded powers to serve many forms of process not handled by process servers in other states.

For more information, see the Massachusetts Constables Association website.
