There are certain situations in which it is necessary to make an urgent application to a court. An urgent application is a request to the court to hear a matter on a priority basis, as the matter cannot wait until the next available hearing date.

There are various circumstances in which an urgent application might be made to a court. For example, an urgent application might be necessary to:

Preserve evidence that may be lost or destroyed

Prevent the dissipation of assets in a commercial dispute

Obtain an injunction to stop someone from taking a particular action

In order to be successful in an urgent application, it is usually necessary to show that there is a pressing need for the matter to be dealt with on an urgent basis. This may be because there is a risk of irreparable harm if the matter is not dealt with promptly, or because there is a need to preserve the status quo until the matter can be properly heard by the court.

If you are considering making an urgent application to a court, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. An experienced lawyer can help you prepare your application and represent you in court. They can also advise you on the likelihood of success and any potential costs or risks associated with making an urgent application.
