VIC County Court eFiling users are now able to experience the new ‘Smart Writ’.
Our new Smart Writ, available from 22 March 2018, builds Writs in compliance with the County Court Civil Procedure Rules. The service also provides a reviewable draft version of the generated Writ prior to lodgement of the document. If any issues are spotted, the Writ can be easily edited and new versions generated as required.
To postpone a lodgement, the Writ can be placed on hold indefinitely within our system and modified or lodged at a later date. Once the final Writ is generated and successfully filed, it will contain the filing date, case number and the court seal.
The new system removes the need for a Filing Confirmation Notice (Form 28) and the use of cumbersome templates for Writs, Form 1 or a Schedule of parties.
To make the transition to using Smart Writ as smooth as possible, the original service will still be available until 18 April 2018. Training and updated help pages will be accessible, as well as a detailed reference guide.
