Divorce and separation

Myth
  Myth
“You cannot personally serve divorce proceedings on individuals serving on board a Royal Navy warship on active service and travelling under radio silence.”
Fact
  Fact
You can. The papers can be served by the British Forces Post Office (BFPO) and the relevant armed force should then be obliged to set up a telephone link, via secure maritime satellite, to the Captain. He will be able to confirm, or otherwise, if the petition has been received on board. If so, an affidavit confirming service can be filed and the divorce progressed.
