Court Fine Payment
A Special Direction is used to enforce a Court Order that has been breached.
Consider whether your neighbour has failed to comply with the terms of the Court Order that you have obtained against him.
Gather the necessary evidence to support your case.
Go to http://www.statecourts.gov.sg/CJTS/ to fill in your Application for Special Direction.
Choose a court date and time for the Pre Trial Conference (PTC).
For the purpose of the proceedings, you will be known as the Applicant and your neighbour will be known as the Respondent.
Within 14 calendar days after the Application for Special Direction is filed in CJTS, the Applicant must serve one (1) set of the Application for Special Direction and one (1) set of the supporting evidence on the Respondent.
E.g. If the Applicant files the Application for Special Direction on 3 August 2015, the Applicant must serve one (1) set of the Application for Special Direction and one (1) set of the supporting evidence on the Respondent by 17 August 2015 at the latest.
Within 8 days after the date on which the documents are served on the Respondent, the Applicant must file a Declaration of Service in CJTS.
If the Respondent intends to object to or contest the Application for Special Direction, the Respondent has 14 calendar days after being served with the Application and the supporting evidence to file his Reply, together with the supporting evidence, in CJTS.
Within the same 14-day period, the Respondent must serve one (1) set of the Reply and one (1) set of the supporting evidence on the Applicant.
The Applicant and the Respondent must attend the Pre-Trial Conference at the CDRT on the specified date and the specified time.
Things to bring:
The CDRT judge can make the following orders during a Pre-Trial Conference:
Where the CDRT judge has fixed the case for hearing, a Notice of Hearing to the Applicant and the Respondent to attend the hearing at the CDRT on a specified date and at a specified time will be issued.
If the CDRT judge decides to make a Special Direction at the Hearing, the CDRT will prepare the Special Direction immediately after the hearing. The Applicant will extract the Special Direction and serve it on the Respondent according to the directions that the CDRT judge has given.
