FAMILY LAW RULES 2004 - RULE 4.03

First court date

                   On the filing of an Initiating Application (Family Law), the Registry Manager must fix a date:

                     (a)  in a parenting case--for a procedural hearing that is as near as practicable to 28 days after the application was filed;

                     (b)  in a financial case--for a case assessment conference that is as near as practicable to 28 days after the application was filed;

                     (c)  if the application includes both a financial case and a parenting case--for a case assessment conference that is as near as practicable to 28 days after the application was filed; or

                     (d)  if an earlier date is fixed for the hearing of that or another application so far as it concerns an interim, procedural or other ancillary order in the case--for a procedural hearing on the same day.

Note:          Under subrule 5.05(4), a Registrar may, in exceptional circumstances, allow an application for an interim, procedural, ancillary or other incidental order to be listed for urgent hearing. Chapter 12 sets out the requirements for case assessment conferences and procedural hearings.
