Something new...

Just as my inglorious career as a practising family lawyer is drawing to a close, I receive a court order that the publication in a national newspaper of an advertisement as to the presentation of a divorce petition be deemed good service. I'm not saying that such an order is unique, but I don't recall ever receiving one previously, in over 25 years of doing this work. You think you've seen everything...


  1. *National* newspaper surprises me. I've seen Local Newspaper before..
