Civil Process Office

The Brockton Civil Process office of the Plymouth County Sheriff's department is benefiting citizens, the legal community and police departments across the county.

The Sheriff's Civil Process office serves more than 25,000 legal documents annually, mostly to parties in civil lawsuits. Fees paid by attorneys and plaintiffs fund the division's entire operation, resulting in zero cost to taxpayers. In years when revenues exceed expenses, surplus funds are used to support law enforcement agencies through such programs as the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, the K9 unit, and the Safekeep program which holds and transports prisoners on behalf of the local police departments.

The legal community can rely on the qualified and experienced staff at the division. A variety of services are available including attachment, execution and seizure of vehicles. Massachusetts Bar Association members receive 30 days of credit.

The legal community and citizens can utilize the Civil Process Division to serve summons, warrants and a variety of legal documents. Among these are...

bullet Landlord - tenant disputes
bullet Divorce proceedings and child support warrants
bullet Real estate attachments and seizures
bullet Sheriff sales of personal property
bullet  Subpoena of witnesses
