RE: POST 149 NOTICE OF BAR

I have managed to prepare the notice of plea and counter claim with assitance. I have faxed this to my husbands attorney and am filing the fax receipt with copies of these in court. Will a fax copy be a problem. I don''t have funds to drive out to where the attorney is, it is bit of a distance also in an area that I am not familiar with. I have just heard that it may be a problem as the attorneys may deny receipt. I have also phone and confirmed receipt with the receptionist.

Dear CA,
If the matter is before the Family - Divorce Court, you can send the Plea and Counter Claim by registered post and file the receipt plus the document at the court. Unfortunately if it is a High Court matter you will need to get the attorney to accept service by way of fax, if they don't accept you will have to deliver it by hand.

It is best to get the sheriff to serve the documents to his attorneys, it is not that expensive to serve it onto them.
