Court Hearing of the Petition

The petition is heard by a judge in court. Rule 16-1 sets out the special information you need to know about petitions. The hearing of petitions is a different procedure than a trial as there are no witnesses; instead, the evidence is presented by affidavits only. The steps and procedures you must follow are set out in the Chambers Applications.
