Urgent applications

We understand urgent situations happen.

QCAT will always try to hear urgent matters quickly, which may involve disregarding formal processes if this is necessary and does not disadvantage or cause prejudice to any party.

Application for an interim order

In some circumstances, QCAT may be able to grant an interim order outlining a short-term decision to take effect while the case is being heard.

To apply for an interim order use Form 41 - Application for interim order (PDF, 284.3 KB).

Application to stay a decision

In some circumstances, QCAT may be able to grant a stay of the decision. A stay temporarily stops the original decision being carried out until a final hearing can be held.

To apply for a stay, please use Form 44 - Application to stay a decision (PDF, 484.9 KB).
