    Hi, on the 8th September, I lodged and served my ex spouse divorce papers via Registered Australia Post. She has signed and received the documents. She has yet to send it back. The Acknowledgement form and the Court date is for the 21st October. Does anyone know what happens under Family Law if she doesn't sign and return that form back to me?

    Thanks.

    Hi Trevy, as far as I am aware the application will go ahead with or without her consent, however you may need to prove that she was served with the documents.

    I think you can use the acceptance of registered post as proof that she was served? Can anyone confirm?
