Substituted Service

With the exception of the High Court, where service is personal, proceedings must be served by registered post on debtors. In the case of the debtor being a Limited Liability Company proceedings can be served by ordinary post.

If the debtor refuses registered post or does not collect it, we have to make an application to court to vary our method of service. We must establish that the defendant is residing at the address given. When our application is granted we can serve proceedings by ordinary post.

In the District Court and the High Court we choose the next available court date for our application for Substituted Service. In the Circuit Court we have to apply for a hearing date and this can take up to three months.
