It depends on your process server. Once you give the papers to the county sheriff or a process server to be served, they will have to locate your wife and serve her the papers. Contact your process server to see if your papers have been served. If you are representing yourself, you can serve the papers to her personally, as long as the original paperwork has been filed with the local county court. If you are represented by counsel, I suggest you ask the attorney representing your interests.
