Sheriff's Directory

Service by Sheriff. Make an additional copy (front and back) of the Statement of Claim (PDF) form. You will need to give TWO copies (your original plus one copy) of the Statement of Claim (with Return of Service notice printed on the back) to the sheriff's department. If the defendant's physical residence differs from the mailing address, you will need to include a note to the sheriff's department regarding where they can locate the defendant. Once the Notice of Claim is served on the defendant, the sheriff's department will send you the original, with the Return of Service completed on the back. You must give the original to the Clerk of Courts. The sheriff will not do that for you.

The sheriff's department will tell you their fee for service which varies from county to county. Some departments require payment in advance. Contact the sheriff for the county where the defendant resides for the address and phone number of each sheriff's department in Maine.
