can restraining order paperwork be served by the same person who filed?
My husband's ex-wife has filed a restraining order, the only way we know this is because she threatened it and then we checked the court website a few days later and there it was. The court date set for the hearing is on the 10th of September and she filed it on the 18th of August. We still have not received anything. Does the court give her a certain number of days to have the paperwork served? Can she serve it herself? What if she doesn't have it served at all and it goes to court and he is a no show? How would the courts determine whether or not he was actually served? We are worried that she may be up to no good trying to take his custody away and want to know what we should do.
