FAMILY LAW RULES 2004 - RULE 19.46

Agent's fees

                   The costs claimed by a lawyer for work done by another lawyer as agent of the lawyer must not be more than the amount the lawyer would have been entitled to charge under Schedule 3 if the lawyer had personally done the work.

Note:          This rule applies unless the court orders otherwise (see rule 1.12). An agent may claim for an amount that is specifically authorised by a client (see subrule 19.12(3)).
