Section 90 of The Royal Court Civil Rules, 2007 makes provision for applicants to present their applications in Court without the requirement of counsel being present; however it should be noted that Greffe staff and Judges are unable to give applicants in person (AiP) legal advice. Any AiP who is unsure of their legal position in a matter should seek the advice of an advocate prior to commencing the application.

The relevant forms can be acquired from the Royal Court Public Counter, or downloaded via the Royal Court website. Please note that applications cannot be made online at present. Applications must be submitted to the Public Counter at the Royal Court, or by post, (with the exception of Liquor Licensing which is submitted to the Liquor Licensing Section of the  Committee for Home Affairs at Sir Charles Frossard House) along with payment for the application. Payment can be made by credit/debit card, cheque, or cash.

The following applications are the ones most frequently made by AiP although this list is not prescriptive.  If the application an AiP wishes to make is not contained in the list below, a letter should be sent by the AiP addressed to HM Greffier setting out details of the application they are seeking to make.  The Greffe will then refer the matter to a Judge to see if it is an application which an AiP can make without legal representation.

1. Action for Debt or Damage (Claims over £10,000)
2. Eviction
3. Enduring (Lasting) Powers of Attorney
4. Guardianship
5. Terres Mises a L'Amende
6. Reciprocal Judgments
7. Liquor Licensing
8. Administration Orders

Please note that the standardised forms are available from the Royal Court Public Counter, or can be downloaded via the links above. If however you have additional information which you wish to submit, this can be provided on a separate page attached to your application.

Where samples of applications and affidavits are included with the standardised forms, these are provided for the assistance of the applicant and may be adapted as necessary.
