I had a Civil Debt Process proceed against me without my knowledge. The Claimant (I am guessing) sent the Application/Summons to my previous NT Residential Address. (I now live off shore and this was known to the claimant prior to service). The local court has heard the matter and made orders against me. In respect of "last known address", given the claimant knew I no longer lived there, has service been effected?
The country where I now reside is not a Hague Convention Member so that criteria of service does not apply. In the country where I reside, local law is that documents must be served personally. (not at an address or on another occupant)
(Note - for service of a document would prove difficult where I am, as the street has no name or lot number and difficult to identify)
