um. I never been Divorce before. but Have you try go to Divorce lawyer ask them a question. that might helpful. Divorce Lawyer can help with you how to Divorce Petition papers. Good luck. Here this. I found off from website. How do I serve the divorce papers? If a lawyer is handling your divorce, he or she will have the divorce papers served on your spouse. If you are using "do-it-yourself" forms, the instructions will tell you what you need to do. Your spouse can agree to sign papers that say he or she has been served. Otherwise, your spouse must be served by either the sheriff or another adult (not you or your children). If you are getting welfare or certain other public benefits, the Support Enforcement Division (SED) will also have to be served with the divorce petition. If you do not have a lawyer, or if the divorce forms you are using do not have instructions about this, you can call SED to find out how to serve them with the papers. What if I am served with divorce papers? If you agree with all the terms of the divorce as listed in the petition, you do not need to respond. If you want to challenge the terms listed in the petition, you must file a written answer (called a "response") with the court within 30 days after you were handed the papers. Contact a lawyer or your local legal services office to learn about what you can do. There is a court fee to file a response in a divorce case.
