FAMILY LAW RULES 2004 - RULE 11.02

Failure to comply with a legislative provision or order

             (1)  If a step is taken after the time specified for taking the step by these Rules, the Regulations or a procedural order, the step is of no effect.

Note:          A defaulter may apply to the court for relief from this rule (see rule 11.03).

             (2)  If a party does not comply with these Rules, the Regulations or a procedural order, the court may:

                     (a)  dismiss all or part of the case;

                     (b)  set aside a step taken or an order made;

                     (c)  determine the case as if it were undefended;

                     (d)  make any of the orders mentioned in rule 11.01;

                     (e)  order costs;

                      (f)  prohibit the party from taking a further step in the case until the occurrence of a specified event; or

                     (g)  make any other order the court considers necessary, having regard to the main purpose of these Rules (see rule 1.04).

Note:          This list does not limit the powers of the court. It is an expectation that a non-defaulting party will minimise any loss.
