How to Apply

Step 5
Judge Makes a Decision

At the court hearing, the appeal judge will make a decision called a court order. Any jurisdictional limits which applied to the District Court will also apply to the Circuit Court. This means that the Circuit Court has the same powers as the District Court when hearing the appeal. 

The court office will finalise the court order and send it to you and the respondent or your solicitors as soon as it is ready.

You should receive the court order within four weeks of the appeal case being heard. If you do not receive the court order within this time, contact the court office.

The decision of the Circuit Court will be final. It cannot be appealed.
