A list of frequently asked questions for Motions Booklets.

A motion booklet should be indexed, paginated and clearly identifiable in relation to the case.  It should include copies of the following:

  • the notice of motion
  • each affidavit (including exhibits) lodged in support or opposition of the motion
  • the notice of appeal and the order under appeal
  • the judgment under appeal (or transcript or agreed note of the judgment) if available
  • any other document relevant to the motion – if the motion is for an extension of time it must include the originating High Court documents.

If the motion is to be heard on a Monday, you should lodge three booklets by the Wednesday before the hearing date.  If it is to be heard on a Friday, you should lodge one copy by the Tuesday before the hearing date.
