Hi Welcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
The rule for service is that where there is an address for service, the papers can be sent to the options in that address. Usually there are several options, including mail, fax and email, but you can just use the one which suits you. If this is a new application with an affidavit attached, this would normally be served personally.
After the other side responds with an address for service, you can use any of those options.
After the application has been served and further affidavits are filed, How soon after an affidavit has been filed with the court, should the other parties been sent a copy? Same day? Next Day? Thanks
There is no specific rule, but it should be as soon as possible. The practice is the court gets their copy and then the other party, so if this is by fax or email, then it can be within minutes.
Ok Thank You
