Good Afternoon

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

There is no law but generally they should keep records for 5 years

You have to issue the subpoena to the telephone carrier that the number is ***** with.

Usually you call them and ask details of the department that you serve subpoenae on and they will give you the correct address

You cannot issue a subpoena unless there is a current court action in place.
