Attaching relevant supporting documentation

You can attach relevant documents to a submission for legal aid.

You should not submit material that is not relevant to making a decision.   Any documents that are included with a submission should be referred to in the submission and should be included specifically to inform the application. For example it is not appropriate that all court documents be submitted where the documents might include Notices to Produce, a Notice of Trial, Notices to Cross – Examine etc. However, if available/drafted, the Statement of Claim, Civil Bill, or Claim Notice, and/or Defence (and Counterclaim) should be included, for both plaintiffs and defendants. To include a document, click the “Available to Legal Services” checkbox beside the relevant document in the Documents tab on EOS.

It is not necessary to attach any Court documents for family law matters in the District Court.
