Urgent filing of documents and certification

    (1)     Despite the requirements of this Part, if as a matter of urgency a document is required to be filed in a civil proceeding, a party to the proceeding or a legal practitioner acting for or on behalf of a party to the proceeding may file the document without complying with the applicable certification provision of this Part.

Example to s. 44(1) amended by No. 62/2012 s. 15.


A document needs to be filed to comply with a limitation period which is about to expire and it is not possible for a party to the proceeding to give certification before the time limit expires. Other examples include applications for freezing orders or for search orders and urgent interlocutory applications.

    (2)     If subsection (1) applies, the person must file the relevant certification in compliance with the relevant section as soon as practicable after filing the document.

S. 45 (Heading) amended by No. 62/2012 s. 16(1).
