SYSTEM STATUS - Available - .

If you are having issues accepting the Obligation Page either press the Enter button on your keyboard to accept the Obligation page or change the compatibility settings if using Internet Explorer 

SYSTEM MAINTENANCE - Due to new filing fees being introduced for all documents which attract a fee from 1 July 2018 in both the Federal Court and Federal Circuit Court in general federal law matters - access to eLodgment for external users will be unavailable from 4.00pm (AEST) on Friday, 29th June 2018 until midnight (AEST) on Sunday, 30th June 2018

This will enable Court staff to process all fee attracting lodgments prior to the fee increase.  

Any urgent matters that may need to be filed while the eLodgment system is unavailable can still be lodged by internal Court staff, so you should request assistance via the relevant Registry


Upcoming Changes

Fee Increases will apply from 1 July 2018

In both the Federal Court and in general federal law matters in the Federal Circuit Court new filing fees apply for filing all documents which attract a fee from 1 July 2018.  More information will be available shortly on the Court’s website.
