Hi, my partner is self-representing to apply for parenting consent orders. He filed in court on the 2/2/2015 and was given a hearing date of 17/3/2015. He sent the papers the next day to The Sheriff in Sydney to have his ex served with the initiating application. She found out about this court date because they also have their divorce hearing on the 3/3/2015, and she filed a response about that with the court, and they told her about the other court date to do with the consent orders. She sent him a text message today saying that she hadn't been served these papers yet and she is supposed to be served within 28 days for the initiating application for consent orders. Is this right? We were given no time frame and The Sheriff's office said that they had plenty of time to serve her. It's Friday afternoon and we obviously can't ring The Sheriff until Monday now. Can anybody please help?
