Subpoenas

In order to provide a more streamlined service of the order 42 process, the following checklist of items should be complied with prior to searching subpoenaed documents.

This guide is provided to assist you in gathering all the information required in order to issue the correct subpoena and make an appointment to inspect and/or photocopy subpoenaed material.

The Court has created two 'smart' forms for the 42A and 42AA subpoenas which will help you to issue subpoenas quickly and efficiently. The forms have been created to include important Court Rules that must be complied with in issuing subpoenas. For example when you select the 'date for production', the 'last date for service' will be automatically picked after the form calculates 5 business days prior to the date for production as per Rule 42.03(8) of the County Court Civil Procedure Rules 2008. Please use these forms to ensure that your subpoenas are issued with no need for repeated amendments. The forms will also help you in calculating the dates for subpoenas issued over the Christmas period.
