Court Fine Payment
A person who is dissatisfied with an Order made by a Tribunal or the Registrar in his/her absence may apply to set aside the Order. The application must be filed within 7 days after the date that Order was made.
After an application is filed, parties will attend before the Tribunal or the Registrar, who will decide whether to allow or dismiss the application. If the application is allowed, the Order will be set aside. If the application is dismissed, the Order stands. The Tribunal or the Registrar may also make such other orders or give further directions as it deems fit.
Consider whether there are sufficient reasons to apply to set aside the decision, direction or Order given in your absence, and gather the necessary evidence to support the Application.
Application to Set Aside at the Central Registry (State Courts, Level 1) within
7 working days after the date on which the decision, direction or order was made.
E.g. If the decision, direction or Order is given or made on 3 April 2017, the last day an Applicant must file the Application is on 12 April 2017. If the last day of the period is a Saturday, Sunday or a Public Holiday, the Application may be filed on the next working day.
Things to bring:
For the purposes of the proceedings, you will be known as the Applicant and the other party will be known as the Respondent.

Notice of Hearing will be issued to the Applicant and the Respondent to attend a Hearing at the ECT on a specified date and time.
The Applicant must serve one (1) copy of the Application to Set Aside on the Respondent within
7 working days after the Application is filed. The documents may be served by:
A Respondent who intends to contest the Application must

Response to the Application to Set Aside at the Central Registry (State Courts, Level 1) within
7 working days after being served with the Application to Set Aside.
E.g. If the Respondent receives the Application to Set Aside on 3 July 2017, the last day the Respondent must
file and serve the Response to the Application to Set Aside is on 12 July 2017. If the last day of the period is a Saturday, Sunday or a Public Holiday, the documents may be filed and served on the next working day. The documents may be served in accordance with the methods set out in the table at
