Some applications brought on an Application in a Case can be heard by the Court in the absence of the parties, in other words without any party attending court for the hearing. These applications are:

  • an application for interim orders; and
  • an application in relation to the procedure to be followed in a case.

The applicant can ask the Court to determine the application in the absence of the parties by marking the appropriate box on the Application in a Case. The Court will not determine the application in the absence of the parties if a respondent objects to this.
