- Victoria registry requires a Requisition in Form 17 when filing a Certificate of Pending Litigation
- Pursuant to PD issued by Court of Appeal on June 27th, effective October 1, 2014 – the court will require parties to deliver to the Court electronic factums or statements, including replies, on CD-ROM, DVD or memory stick at the same time as paper factums or statements are filed. The Court will no longer accept “floppy disks” of any kind. Memory sticks must be in a marked envelopes and will not be returned. A complete copy of the Practice Directive can be viewed on the court’s website.
- When scheduling an application to be heard in a registry that is not the home registry of the action and outside the Judicial District, you must file your application materials along with a Requisition for leave at the home registry. If leave is granted, you will then file the Application Record at the registry where your application is to be heard within the appropriate time frame.
- Dye & Durham has made their processing turnaround times available for your reference on our website as well as under the Resource tab of ETRAY™ . Please keep in mind that these times may change without notice based on court registry procesing times.
