My wife lives abroad and I am sure that she will never give the acknowledgement.She wanted to punish me for not succumbing to her controlling behaviour.I actually wanted to send the summons via process server first.Is that possible ? If so , how can I inform this to the court. I assume court will post her the documents , thus alerting her.Through which form , I can inform this to the court ?
Yes, it is possible. When you issue the Petition, ask the court to return it to you for service, rather than posting it to her.
there is not a set form, you smply need to request this when the Petition is posted to the court.
As your wife is overseas the Court Bailiff''s can''t serve it so you would need a private process server - I would recommend making some enquiries first about the likely cost, and make sure that the priocess servers you use know what is needed in terms of statement or affidavit of service.
