Legal Question in Family Law in Pennsylvania

I filed a petition for special relief and received an order of Rule returnable by a certain date. I immediately mailed a copy of the rule and petition to my unrepresented opposing party. If there is no response how do i file a motion to make the rule absolute? I can find no sample on line. In addition rule 440 states that service can be via USPS mail and service is considered complete upon mailing. However all mail I have sent in the past comes back refused. What happens if the petition and Rule come back refused?

If the certified mail come comes back as refused and you sent the same thing regular mail then it's good service.

For a rule absolute you make an order from the court and file that indicating they hadn't responded to the rule.
