Principal Registry Works:
Effective from Monday, 6 November 2017
Please note that while construction works continue, the Principal Registry expects longer than usual wait times for customers to the Prothonotary and Probate Offices'. We encourage the use of Citec eFiling, where possible.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience while the works are completed.
Our registries are responsible for the Court's administration.
They can provide information on the filing of documents, pre-trial conferences, video links of proceedings, fee payment, and general procedural advice.
The Supreme Court Principal Registry performs a range of administrative functions and services including:
- maintaining the secure storage of Court files
- issuing subpoenas
- serving legal documents overseas
- providing copies of documents
- providing procedural advice on urgent matters
- collecting court fees
Registry staff cannot give you legal advice. They can help with general information about the Court; its rules, procedures and processes.
If you need advice about commencing, defending or appealing a legal action we have some information on representing yourself.
For more information contact the Supreme Court registry.
