Queensland Law Society

QLS speeds up delayed judgments process

We’ve reduced Queensland Law Society (QLS) processing time for delayed judgments inquiries. Newly-developed electronic forms will enable practitioners to easily submit requests for us to chase up judgments.

There are three forms available - one for new inquiries, one for follow-ups and one to close the file. Please download the relevant form, complete and email to delayedjudgments@qls.com.au

Delayed judgment forms can be submitted when it’s taken longer than three months to receive a judgment. They may be in relation to final judgments, costs, interim orders, appeals or other decisions.

The Society has offered a delayed judgments service for a number of years, however the previous process involved posting correspondence back and forth. With the new electronic forms, you can submit your inquiry and receive a more rapid response from the Society. Within seven days of submitting a form, you will receive a response from us recognising your submission and confirming we’ve started looking into your case.

Your confidentiality is assured. We make discreet requests of the courts and do not indicate which party has made the inquiry.

This service is part of our commitment to you to represent your interests and advocate for an efficient and fair justice system.
