Hi thanks for your question. My name is***** can assist with this.
You would say that you're opposing the bankruptcy petition on the following grounds essentially:
(a) that you were never served with the statutroy demand
(b) no order for substituted service of the statutory demand was made (if that;s the case);
(c) that you oppose the underling basis upon which the demand (and the petition) is presented, and then set out those grounds.
This is how to do it - the main headings for you to expand upon in the Form 6.19.
Obviously, I cannot say whether this would succeed - it depends on your judge on the day (the court has a discretion) and it depends on whether you can make out a proper challenge to the debt claimed.
Yes, because it should still be personally served. However, if she gave it to you, it does mean the court is more likely to make an order there and then for substituted service, depriving you of this argument.
This SS order should have been made earlier though in reality.
So there is an argument there for you.
Does this answer your question? Is there anything more you would like to ask me?
