Form 45 - Application for physical appearance
This application is to be used if an accused has been ordered to appear by AVL on the return date but a physical appearance is now required. This application may be made at any time up to three days before the court hearing (the Court may reduce this time further if there is sufficient reason) and must be served on the other party.
The application must be lodged at the Court location where the matter is listed. The application will be determined on the papers without the need for an appearance by the parties. The Act provides for the application to be determined in chambers. These applications may also be heard in open court upon application and leave of the Court.
This form (and the related legislative changes) commenced on 12 September 2016.
