INSTRUCTIONS TO THE JUDGMENT CREDITOR (PLAINTIFF): Supplementary process is a procedure used to bring into
court a judgment debtor who has refused to voluntarily pay a civil money judgment in order to examine the judgment debtor's
ability to pay the judgment and to seek a court order to compel payment. See Mass. Gen. Laws c. 224, §14.
A supplementary process proceeding may be brought in the District Court or Boston Municipal Court division where the
judgment debtor lives or has a usual place of business or employment. However, if this proceeding is incidental to a case or
matter in a Housing Court division then it must be brought in said Housing Court division. If applicable, the Fair Debt
Collection Practices Act, 15 U.S.C.A. §§1692 et seq., may contain additional requirements that a judgment creditor must
comply with before commencing a supplementary process proceeding.
To begin this procedure, this application must be completed and then filed with the clerk's office along with the required entry
fee. You do not have to, but you may file the original or a copy of the order of judgment or execution with this application.
However, at the supplementary process hearing, you will be required to present the original execution or other certified proof
of the unpaid money judgment. Upon the payment of the required entry fee, the clerk's office will issue a summons under
court seal to you to be served on the judgment debtor at least 7 days before the hearing date noted on the summons.
The below-named and undersigned Judgment Creditor (Plaintiff) hereby makes Application for
Supplementary Process against the below-named Judgment Debtor (Defendant) for payment of the
unsatisfied civil judgment described below.
