How to Service Documents – a Guide for Self-represented Litigants

Select to highlight:

Service of a document is the process where you make sure that any person who is required to be given a copy of an application to the Court, or any other legal
document, is given it in a way which complies with the relevant legal rules.

In family law proceedings, this is often the process by which the other party is provided with a copy of your affidavit, your proposed Court Orders, or any other submissions you have made to the Court.

The relevant legal rules in family law proceedings prohibit you, as the litigant, from delivering these documents to the other party personally. Delivery must be done by another party, with proof of delivery required to satisfy the Court that the documents were delivered appropriately.

This document defines how the Court requires these documents to be delivered to the other parties.
