Hi all, On 16/7/15 I had my ex served with papers regarding initiating application, application in a case and affidavits. The hearing for the application in a case is the 18/8/15 and the initial hearing is 24/8/15. This is taking place in the Family Court and not the Federal Circuit. My question is, do the same time limits on service apply to the family court as they do on the federal circuit court? I can only find this and no information on Family Court service times: FEDERAL CIRCUIT COURT RULES 2001 - RULE 6.19 Time for service of applications Unless the Court orders otherwise, an application and any document filed with it may not be served: (a) less than 3 days before the day fixed for the hearing of an application in a case; or (b) less than 7 days before the day fixed for the hearing of any other application Thanking you in advance.
