Process Service Procedures for Australia
Australia is a member of the Hague Service Convention; therefore, we work directly with the Central Authority to complete your process service request immediately. The Central Authority will make arrangements according to Australia’s legal processes (the time frame ranges from 3 to 4 months in most cases). Our process servers consider this the best method if you anticipate attachment of assets abroad.
Process Service Advantage: Enforcement of judgment in Australia.
Disadvantage: The time frame is generally longer than the informal method.
Signed, Sealed, & Delivered also serves nations that haven’t signed the Hague Service Convention. In many cases, process service is handled similarly to the United States, but assignments take slightly longer to complete as customs, traditions, and differences in work habits present unforeseeable hurdles. Nonetheless, our experience serving the legal process overseas maintains our position as the fastest international process service company in Florida.
The majority of our Australia process servers are off-duty police officers or government officials brought on to exercise their official authority to complete your process service request as fast as possible. We do all we can to complete your assignment in less than two weeks.
Advantage: The time frame is generally shorter than the formal method.
Disadvantage: Judgment “may” not be enforceable in Australia.
Letters Rogatory are a great means to establish an enforceable judgement internationally, and this method works for process service in nations not signed with the Hague Service Convention. Letters Rogatory are requests for judicial assistance and we recommend them for obtaining evidence or serving pleadings. The only downside to Letters Rogatory is the unavoidable delay involved with moving legal documents between foreign authorities. This method is time consuming and should be used only when other options are not available. In most cases, Letters Rogatory take six months to one year for the process to complete. This method should only be used if no process service treaty (i.e. The Hague Service Convention) is in force or if you are serving a Subpoena.
Advantage: In effect, creates a case in the country where the documents are served and makes judgment enforceable.
Disadvantage: Serious time delays and costs.
