Thank you for your question. A copy of the family law civil bill, affidavits of means and welfare (as appropriate) are served by the applicant on the respondent in one of the ways allowed by the court rules, that is by registered prepaid post, by personal service or in such other way as the court or county registrar allows
I anticipate that he wishes to hand the papers to you in person so that they have been officially 'served'. Handing them to you in person guarantees that you have received them. Divorce papers normally have to be hand delivered in this way so it is quite normal. You will probably be asked to sign a receipt to show that you have received the papers.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Kind regards, Helen
