When filling for an extention of a restraining order. How is the service on respondent done?
Miami, FL |
This person moves often, making service difficult. In DV restraining orders aren't the respondents suppose to file change of address with the court? Can a respondent be served by mail to the last address? Or has to be the sheriff's dptm?
I agree with my peer on his answer and will add that if your allegations are serious and you can prove you are still in danger, the Judge may extend the injunction until the Respondent is served if it has not expired and if he/she can procedurally do so. You must still give the Court and the Judge all information you have regarding his new address or addresses of family members if you have them. Good luck to you.
