Available Forms

The Online Registry has more than 80 forms that can be filed online. The sections below list the forms that can be used at different stages of the litigation process. These forms are listed for your information only. To start filing forms, you will need to have an account with the Online Registry, and login. After you login, you can find the relevant form under 'New case', or by entering case details under 'Search cases'. 

When you have opened the form, you can follow the prompts and enter details as you go. Some forms require you attach a pre-filled PDF version of the form. Some forms can only be accessed depending on your role type and the stage your case has reached.

If you are representing yourself, it is recommended that you seek independent legal advice about the legal process, or seek mediation before you start filing forms. If you require a form that is not listed here, you may download forms from the approved civil forms list.

Notice to Plead Facts - Money Claims (UCPR 16)

To file a defence, you may file the Notice to Plead Facts form (UCPR 16) within 28 days of receipt of the Statement of Claim.

Notice of Payment (UCPR 34)

You can file a Notice of Payment (UCPR 34) if you have paid the full amount identified as owing to the plaintiff in the Statement of Claim served on you. This includes interest, fees and legal costs.

Points of Defence 

This document responds, or provides an answer, to the Points of Claim.

In this document, it is usual to respond to each claim detailed in separate paragraphs. If the Points of Defence ‘admits’ a claim, this means the respondent agrees with what is claimed in a specific paragraph. If the Points of Defence ‘denies’ a claim, this means that the respondent does not agree with what is claimed in a specific paragraph.

In your Points of Defence, you can also include legal issues that you claim demonstrate that you are not responsible for any breaches of the law or that the applicant is not entitled to what they are seeking in their summons.

Like a Statement of Claim, a Statement of Cross Claim has to fully set out in the pleadings the details of the Cross Claim, in accordance with the Rules (see UCPR Part 9 and Part 14).

Your Amended Plans (and any application for leave to amend plans) must have attached written particulars that indicate the nature of the changes to the original plans.

Amended Statement of Claim

A Statement of Claim may be amended once without the court’s permission if it is done within 28 days of the original document being filed. If more than 28 days has passed, or if you have already amended your original Statement of Claim once before, you must ask for, and obtain, the Court’s permission to file an Amended Statement of Claim.  

If your case is in the Local Court’s Small Claims Division, you can ask for permission to amend when you appear at the Pre-Trial Review. In any other cases, you need to file a Notice of Motion (UCPR 20) to obtain an order to amend. 

To prepare your Amended Statement of Claim, download the Statement of Claim form. You will need form number UCPR 3A, if you are a legal professional representing a client, or UCPR 3B, if you are representing yourself.

You will need to seek permission, or leave, to amend the Cross-Claim. This leave is sought by way of a Notice of Motion to amend, except for Local Court Small Claims Division Cross Claims where the leave is sought at Pre-Trial Review, filed and granted.

Amended Statement of Facts and Contentions
