Attached to this notice is a [name of process] (“the attached process”) issued out of the [issuing court].

Service of the attached process outside [State or Territory of issue] is authorised by the Service and Execution of Process Act 1992.

Your rights

If a court of a State or Territory other than [State or Territory of issue] is the appropriate court to determine the claim against you set out in the attached process, you may be able to [2have the proceeding stayed by applying to the [issuing court] / 3apply to the Supreme Court in [State or Territory of issue] to have the proceeding transferred to another Supreme Court or a federal court].

If you think the proceeding should be stayed or transferred you should get legal advice as soon as possible.

Contesting this claim

If you want to contest this claim, you must take any action set out in the attached process as being necessary to contest the claim.

4If you want to contest this claim, you must also file an appearance5 in the [issuing court]. You have only 216 days after receiving the attached process to do so.

The appearance5 must contain [7an address in Australia where documents can be left for you or sent to you / 8your address].

______________

1If the person to be served is not described in the process as a “defendant”, substitute the correct description.

2Include if the court of issue is not a Supreme Court.

3Include if the court of issue is a Supreme Court.

4If the defendant need not enter an appearance (as defined in section 14 of the Act) in order to contest the claim, omit this paragraph and the remainder of the form.

5If the document that must be filed is not called an appearance, substitute the correct name.

6If the issuing court has allowed a shorter period for filing an appearance, substitute that shorter period and disregard the next paragraph.

If the law of the State or Territory of issue would allow a longer period than 21 days for filing an appearance in the case of service within the State or Territory, substitute that longer period. If that law would allow different periods for service within the State or Territory, depending on the distance of the place of service from another place, and the period based on the longest distance would be longer than 21 days, substitute that period.

Note: This note is a summary, for guidance only, of subsections 17(1) and (1A) of the Act. The applicable period under those provisions must be stated.

If you have any trouble understanding them you should get legal advice as soon as possible

Attached to this notice is a subpoena1 (“the attached subpoena”) that is a subpoena for the purposes of Part 3 of the Service and Execution of Process Act 1992 issued by the [issuing court or authority].

Your rights

You may be able to apply to a court or authority to set aside or obtain other relief in respect of the attached subpoena. If you would like to make an application you should get legal advice as soon as possible.

Your obligations

You must obey the attached subpoena if:

(a)        at the time of service or at some reasonable time before [date for compliance] you were offered or given:

(i)         enough money to meet your reasonable expenses in obeying it, including any travel and accommodation costs; or

(ii)        a combination of money, travel tickets and vouchers to meet those expenses; and

(b)       either:

(i)         you received the attached subpoena at least 142 days before [date for compliance]; or

(ii)        you received the attached subpoena less than 142 days before [date for compliance] and you received with the attached subpoena a copy of an order made by [issuing court or authority] permitting the attached subpoena to be served at that time.

If the attached subpoena only requires production of documents or things, you may comply with the attached subpoena by delivering the documents or things at least 24 hours before [date for compliance] to the Registrar3 of [issuing court or the court to which the issuing authority belongs].

This is most important

If you are subject to a restriction on your movements that you might breach if you comply with the attached subpoena, there are some additional actions you must take for your own protection.

The restriction on you could be imposed as:

(a)        conditions of bail; or

(b)       conditional release from prison; or

(c)        conditions of probation; or

(d)       home or periodic detention; or

(e)        a community service order, community based order, attendance order, intensive correction order or work and development order; or

If you are under a restriction of that kind, you must, as soon as practicable after you receive the attached subpoena, inform your supervisor of the service of the attached subpoena. If you are on bail, and your bail is subject to a condition that you report periodically to the police, your supervisor is any police officer at the police station at which you are required to report. If you are on bail, and your bail is subject to a condition that you report periodically to a correction service officer, that officer is your supervisor. In any other case, your supervisor is the person who supervises your compliance with the restriction.

Also, you must, as soon as practicable, inform the [issuing court or authority] [4and [person at whose request the subpoena was issued]] of the restriction to which you are subject.

You must take all reasonable steps to have the restriction varied so that you can comply with the attached subpoena.

If the restriction is not varied, you must inform the [issuing court or authority] [4and [person at whose request the subpoena was issued]] either:

(a)        of the steps you took to have the restriction varied, and that the restriction has not been varied; or

(b)       that the law does not permit that variation;

whichever is the case.

If you are under a restriction of that kind, you must, as soon as practicable after you are released, inform your supervisor of the service of the attached subpoena. If you are on bail, and your bail is subject to a condition that you report periodically to the police, your supervisor is any police officer at the police station at which you are required to report. If you are on bail, and your bail is subject to a condition that you report periodically to a correction service officer, that officer is your supervisor. In any other case, your supervisor is the person who supervises your compliance with the restriction.

Also, you must, as soon as practicable, inform the [issuing tribunal] [4and [person at whose request the subpoena was issued]] of the restriction to which you are subject.

You must take all reasonable steps to have the restriction varied so that you can comply with the attached subpoena.

If the restriction is not varied, you must inform the [issuing tribunal] [4and [person at whose request the subpoena was issued]] either:

(a)        of the steps you took to have the restriction varied, and that the restriction has not been varied; or

(b)       that the law does not permit that variation;

whichever is the case.
