The applicant must, as soon as practicable and at least 5 days before the return date fixed in an originating application, serve a copy of the following personally on each respondent named in the originating application:
(a) the originating application;
(b) each other document required to accompany the application by rule 8.05 or any other rule of the Court.
Note 1: The Court may extend or shorten the time for service--see rule 1.39.
Note 2: Division 10.1 deals with personal service.
Note 3: Service should generally be effected as soon as practicable after filing (which may be immediately). This will provide time for steps required under practice notes issued by the Chief Justice to be undertaken before the return date.
