What Court has to be satisfied before Making a Divorce Order?
The Registrar of the Family Court must be satisfied that the petition has been served on the respondent. Service means bringing the proceedings to the counter party's notice and response. The legal representative can prove this to the court by:
showing that respondent has completed and returned to the Registrar a Form 4, or
having the servicing clerk file an affirmation as evidence of service to that effect.
The Registrar of the Family Court will:
make directions on the date, place and time of trial and
notify us and the other parties such as the respondent in the legal proceedings.
