From 4pm on Friday 29 March 2019, the CITEC platform previously used for electronic filing of documents in the Common Law Division, Costs Court and some Commercial Court matters will no longer be accessible. Prior to this date, we recommend that Court users ensure they have retained copies of documents filed in CITEC for their own ongoing reference. After the 29 March 2019, copies of documents previously filed in CITEC can be obtained by contacting the relevant Registry to search the Court file.
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:
- accepting documents for filing in RedCrest, the Court's electronic filing system
- preparing and circulating Court orders
- 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.
