Hearings are subject to change, so please check the Daily Hearing List.
The Court does not usually authenticate orders made at a directions hearing. Parties requiring an authenticated order should email@example.com@idinoc.srebmahc to Judicial Registrar Conidi by email after the directions hearing to request an authenticated order.
Please note: Temporary changes to the conduct of Costs Court Directions Hearings before Judicial Registrar Conidi are in place. The same practice will continue to apply for future Directions until the Costs Court can return to hearings being listed in the courtroom.
Read the temporary changes on the Lawyer-Client Costs Disputes page.
A fee is payable for filing a Summons for Taxation unless you have a fee waiver. Additional fees are payable if you seek to file an application for leave to file a Summons for Taxation out of time.
