Good Morning

Generally you have to be served in person. But they can get an order for substituted service and serve you by email.

If you reside interstate and they have difficulty serving you then the court would grant the service by email.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Regards
Leon

Are they suing you in the family court or as a debt?

I am surprised she has legal aid.

Have you seen the paperwork?

i do not know i would assume debt because we were never married or have any spouses, Some one came o my house ad asked for mebut the people i shae wih did not recognise my first name he had a paper to serve

Until you receive the paperwork you will not know what she wants.

Once you receive it then you have 28 days to respond.

If you disagree you will defend it and if she owes you money you cross claim against her.

But you cannot do anything at the moment until you get the documents.

Once you get them you must act because if you do nothing she will get judgement against you and that means you have orders to pay her.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
