The Court accepts the following methods of payment:
Payments by cheque or money order should be drawn in favour of the "Supreme Court of NSW".
If you have been issued with an invoice for a Supreme Court fee, you can pay by credit card over the phone by calling 1300 679 272. All other fees are payable at the time you file the document, or request an administrative service and must be paid by the methods outlined above.
Part 4 of the Civil Procedure Regulation 2017 provides that fees may be waived or postponed in certain circumstances. You will need to complete this application form and supply any supporting documentation either specifically requested on the form, or that you feel will assist your application.
A Registrar will then determine your application in accordance with the Department of Justice Guidelines on Fee Waiver, Remission and Postponement of Fees.
Clause 9(5) of the Civil Procedure Regulation 2017, the hearing allocation date fee becomes payable either as soon as the presiding judicial officer sets the hearing date, or the registry notifies the parties of the hearing date, not on the first day of the hearing.
If you feel there are specific and compelling reasons why the hearing allocation fee should not be payable that override the trigger for payment set out in Clause 9(5), you may apply to have this fee postponed or waived.
