Serving the divorce papers is the first shot fired across the bow in the divorce battle. After the initial filing of the petition in your divorce case, the next step is to deliver the petition to your spouse. This is called service of process and it must be accomplished in strict compliance with the rules of the court. Service can be contested and quite often is in the cases where the parties live in different provinces. In Canada, to ensure that service is properly and legally accomplished an Affidavit of Service is required to be sworn by the person who delivers the papers. This form states the when and how service was performed.
You can do this yourself, or have a friend do it for you. If you are reluctant to involve a friend or family member you may hire a professional process server. It is his or her task to deliver the documents in a professional manner using discretion and common courtesy.
The fee for this service is usually less than $100.

What if you need to find him or her?
You have not heard from your spouse for months or years and have no idea where he or she is living right now. Nevertheless, the law requires that your spouse receives a copy of the divorce papers. A valid address is important.
