We want to make it easier for people with disability to get assistance when attending court.
To help, we need information about the types of assistance you require or support you will bring, and your court case.
The Request for court assistance form (DOCX, 59.1 KB) outlines these details. Completing this form is voluntary.
The form has two sections: the first section is about your requirements and the second section is about dealing with other justice agencies.
The information you provide will help us provide the assistance you need.
This request is placed on the court file, so each time you attend court for this matter your assistance should be ready.
You should not need to ask for help again for this court case.
If you do not want to complete the form but would still like assistance, you can speak with court staff who can still assist. However, they may not be able to fill your requests at short notice.
If you would like we can notify other justice agencies, if required, of your disability related requests.
For criminal cases, these agencies are:
1. Complete section 1 of the form once you know your first court date.
2. Tick all the boxes that apply (your role in the court case).
3. This section is optional. Select the justice agencies we can notify, if required, of your request.
4. Save the completed form and email to the court. Alternatively, the form can be printed and submitted to the Court Registrar.
