Rule 29

In all cases not governed by the Mass.R.Dom.Rel.P., time for service and giving of notice shall be governed by Mass.R.Civ.P. 5 and 6. Wherever the word "complaint" appears in said rule, it shall also mean, where applicable, "petition."

Reporter's notes

(2012) The subject of this Rule is covered in Mass.R.Civ.P. 5 and 6. They eliminate the need for a written certificate of service or affidavit of notice unless service or notice is questioned. But see proposed new Rule 28A which will require a certificate of service.
