Hi there

Thank you for your question. I will try to assist you in answering it today but please feel free to ask as many follow up questions as you like until you are 100% satisfied.

There is no rule that states it must be done within a specific time. It must just be done as soon as possible before the return date on the interim order. If it cannot be served before the return date, the court may grant an extension of the interim order on application by the applicant.

I hope this answered your question.
