NOTICE ALERT IN LIGHT OF COVID-19
WHAT WE PROPOSE AND HOW WE CAN ASSIST
At Watson & Watson our clients come first. Please be assured of our continued dedicated services to all current and new clients.
As we have done in the past, we will continue to offer alternative conferencing methods ie video conferencing, skype or telephone conferences. Reviewing of all documentation provided to us prior to any initial conference will be all inclusive of our set fee. Do not hesitate to contact Shereen Da Gloria on (02) 9221 6011 should you have any concerns.
Usually when the matter is listed for procedural matters and the other side does not turn up the matter will be adjourned (and the non-attending party may be ordered to pay the costs). In those circumstances, the Court may in the absence of the non-attending party, make directions and procedural orders to progress the hearing of the matter.
Where there is a matter listed for hearing of either an interlocutory or application in a case or for a final hearing, if one party fails to attend Court then the matter may proceed by way of an undefended hearing. However, certain factors must be satisfied before a Court will allow you to proceed in this manner. These factors include:
Your solicitor will be able to advise you further as to the approach the Court will likely adopt if the other party fails to participate in the proceedings based upon the individual circumstances of your case.
Opinions as to value or “causes” of events can only be given by appropriate expert evidence.
