Set aside applications


When facing a legal judgment or order that you believe is unjust, incorrect, or obtained unfairly, you may have the option to file a “set aside” application. This legal process allows you to request that the court reviews and potentially overturns the existing judgment or order. At Diplock Solicitors, we specialize in helping clients with set aside applications, ensuring that their rights and interests are protected.


Understanding Set Aside Applications: Set aside applications are typically made for various reasons, including:

  1. Procedural Errors: If you believe that the court made an error in the legal process or didn’t follow the correct procedures, you can request a set aside.

  2. New Evidence: If new evidence comes to light that was not available during the initial judgment, you may have grounds for a set aside.

  3. Unfair Judgment: If you can demonstrate that the judgment was fundamentally unfair or unjust, you can seek to have it set aside.

How Diplock Solicitors Can Assist You: Our team of experienced solicitors is well-versed in the intricacies of set aside applications. We can assist you by:

  • Assessing Your Case: We will review the details of your situation, including the judgment or order you wish to challenge, to determine the strength of your case.

  • Legal Expertise: Our solicitors will provide you with expert legal advice on whether a set aside application is the appropriate course of action.

  • Documentation: We will help you gather and prepare all necessary documents and evidence to support your application.
