Form D89: Request for personal service by a court bailiff (applications issued before April 2022)
Ask a court bailiff to hand-deliver papers to the respondent in family proceedings for you.
If you’re applying for an order to protect you or a child from harm, you must not hand the court papers to the respondent yourself. You can ask a court bailiff to do it for you using this form. There’s no fee involved.
You can also use this form if you need the court’s help to deliver papers about your application for a divorce, dissolution of a civil partnership or (judicial) separation.
