By tracking legal changes and current events, Process Server One’s Northern Territory process servers understand the best ways to expedite assignments and beat pressing deadlines. In addition to rush service, we offer to serve your legal paperwork informally (which can save months of time compared to formal service through the Hague Convention).

Note: Process service in Northern Territory (formal and informal) can vary greatly because customs and traditions lead to delays year-round. If you choose rush service, Process Server One’s private network of Northern Territory process servers and government officials may be able to minimize slowdowns despite the circumstances.

Details on Service of Process in Australia

Before Australia converted its processes to the Hague Service Convention on November 1, 2010, service of process from the U.S. to Australia could be completed by simply hiring an Australian process service company. Today, many courts in Australia have no problems processing legal documents served by private process servers despite the Hague Service Convention being in force. Furthermore, the Australian Central Authority has not specified its terms regarding who is considered a judicial officer as it relates to Article 10 of the Hague Service Convention.

Alternative Channels for Service of Process in Australia

Depending on the state or territory, process service by mail is legal in some places in Australia. Process service by mail, in all cases, requires a signed receipt.

Note: There are several common issues with process service by mail even while adhering to the Hague Service Convention. All local rules must be followed without a misstep. Process service from abroad is considered acceptable in the event that the area hasn’t specifically dismissed the option.

Here’s How Our Northern Territory` Process Service Company Works

FORMAL SERVICE OF PROCESS

Australia, as a signer of The Hague Service Convention, has an official system for receiving documents from other nations involving their Central Authority. We recommend using the formal method immediately because it’s highly effective, but the process takes 3 to 4 months on average after our work is done.

INFORMAL SERVICE OF PROCESS

Process Server One will attempt informal service of process in Australia to save you time in the event of a legal emergency or upcoming deadline. The average time frame from informal service to Australia is 2 weeks, and your papers are served by international process servers including off-duty police officers or government officials incentivized by Process Server One to serve quickly and accurately.

LETTERS ROGATORY

Need evidence or pleadings from a foreign country? A Letter Rogatory is another formal solution to get legal assistance officially from foreign courts. This process takes time to complete, delays up to one year are normal given all the back-and-forth with courts overseas. That’s why we recommend starting the process early (to help cancel the consequences of potential delays).

TRANSLATION

Many countries require the translation of legal documents and translation is recommended by the U.S. Department of State if applicable.
