As a result of the amended Magistrates Court (Civil Procedure) Rules 2005 and the Magistrates Court (Minor Case Procedure) Rules 2005 (Rules of Court) changes have been made to the WA Magistrates Court Civil forms.
To reflect these changes, forms made under the previous Rules of Court will be available under the Magistrates Court – Civil Matters commenced prior to 1 June 2020 folder. Please note that these forms are for “transitional cases” – cases that have been commenced but have not concluded by 1 June 2020. For ease of identifying forms for Civil Matters commenced prior to 1 June 2020, the form numbers assigned to these forms have the suffix “pre-1 June 2020”.
