This workbook provides an overview of the Family Court and the Federal Circuit Court process and procedures.
Interim Hearings are held when the parties cannot agree on arrangements for their children or property, and the Court needs to make a temporary order, or an order that certain steps take place before a final decision is made. The orders made at an interim hearing will remain in place until there is another Court order, or some other agreement between the parties. An interim hearing may take place on the very first Court date that is allocated when your documents are filed with the Court, or may occur after an adjournment or other procedure. If you are not sure whether your legal matter is going to have an interim hearing, you should speak to one of our solicitors.
