Civil procedural fact sheets for the Supreme Court and District Court

The Supreme Court and District Court have published procedural fact sheets designed to provide plain English guidelines for common procedures in civil litigation in Queensland.

The fact sheets provide information about time-critical events in the life of a civil claim, demonstrate how to complete frequently required forms, and explain how to carry out other commonly required tasks, including bringing an interlocutory application, preparing an affidavit, and applying for an adjournment.

These guidelines will assist self-represented litigants and legal practitioners who are unfamiliar with civil practice and procedure in these jurisdictions.

The online fact sheets enable downloading and printing in PDF format. Links embedded in the fact sheets take the reader directly to statutory rules, court forms, and other useful resources.

The fact sheets apply to all Supreme and District Court civil claims, although certain information, e.g. email contacts for registry officers, is specific to claims filed in the Brisbane registry. Regional specific information should be requested from the relevant registry.
