Special circumstances list on hold – February 2019

Information about the Magistrates' Court currently not adding special circumstances applicants to the Special Circumstances List.

Tuesday 5 February 2019 at 12:00 am

The Magistrates' Court is not listing any new special circumstances matters. The Special Circumstances List has not officially ended and VLA is continuing to advocate for the list to continue, but at this stage, matters are unlikely to end up in this list after an enforcement review.
