regular service

English

To serve a document by regular service means you have to give a copy of that document to your partner or their lawyer by either:

  • mail
  • courier
  • document exchange
  • fax
  • email

There are rules about how to serve a document by regular service that depend on how you serve the document. For example, you can serve a document by electronic document exchange or email only if the person you are serving agrees or you have a court order that allows you to serve documents this way.

Most documents can be served by regular service. In some cases, such as when you are starting a court case, you have to serve your document by special service.
