Serve Divorce Application
Getting divorced is a process, our part is known as divorce process serving. The Federal Circuit Court (which is absorbing the Family Law Court) is where you apply for a divorce, in Australia. Once applied for, and processed ('sealed' by the court, meaning they have stamped it with the court stamp, the court seal), the application is generally served on the other party. We are process servers, which are the frequently used option for serving a divorce application.

A divorce may be submitted electronically, through the court portal, mailed in, or submitted at the court house in person. Once the forms are submitted, and the fee to the court paid, the divorce application is processed. This is referred to as sealing the application, because the court seal (stamp) is applied to the document. The sealed copy is what is served. The divorce application has a court date set, there is a requirement to serve the divorce application 28 days clear of that court date; if it is apparent that the divorce cannot be served within time frames you may return to the court, and ask for an extension, a new court date, alternately you serve the divorce, and accept that the court date will be moved back to give the other party 28 days clear to respond, should they choose. It is not generally acceptable to fail to meet the 28 days clear guideline. That the document has been served correctly is signified by an affidavit of service, by the server. If using a process server it becomes irrelevant (although desirable) if the other part signs the acknowledgement of service.
For most divorce applications the process is complete when you serve the divorce application prior to the 28 days clear cutoff, and a correct Affidavit of Service is returned to the court (the Acknowledgement of Service may accompany it, if they sign). The court process becomes a 'rubber stamp'. Where the other party lodges some objection, or avoids service, the process becomes harder. Using a process server should avoid some of those issues.
