Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
Do you mean you won't be able to get the documents to the Respondent by 4 pm today?
Please bear in mind this is an email service and not a live chat so responses may not be instantaneous. I am not available for calls, but in all cases it is very likely you can be helped online.
I presume, given the number of open threads you have, that you no longer require assistance with this?
If you have sent them, and they have been received, there shouldn't be any issues as you have complied with the order.
Don't forget to rate positively for my time. Thanks.
What usually happens when someone makes an application to the court is that you are required to provide the court with several copies of the documents including the application form. The court stamps all of those copies (seals them) and then either sends them out to the applicant and respondent themselves, or returns an extra copy to the applicant to serve on the respondent. If that did not happen and all you have are unsealed copies you should serve what you have so you don't miss the deadline.
If your own copy was sealed, you can photocopy that and send it to the respondent. It is to put them on notice of what has occurred. Just ensure that what you send them is a true copy of what you submitted to court.
If the original sealed copy has already been sent to the respondent by the court, then your understanding is correct - the current order is stipulating that you should serve it on them again so there can be no doubt they received it this time.
I can say that if you have done as the court ordered you to and followed the directions to serve, then you have complied and all should be fine.
You are obligated to send the same document that the court has.
Could you kindly take the time to rate positively as that is how I am paid for the time I spent assisting you. Thank you.
Kindly rate positively before asking further questions. Thanks.
As I said earlier, if the court sent a copy previously and you are just sending it again, it is less important that it is sealed, but it should be the same as the one you sent to the court. What are the reasons for the changes to it?
