Important Information About COVID-19

In order to protect the health and well-being of our staff, parties to proceedings, and all users of the SAT building, in light of the risks posed by COVID-19, the following measures have been implemented at the SAT, with immediate effect:

  • DO NOT enter the SAT building if you are unwell, have returned from overseas within the past 14 days, or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive to COVID-19. If that is the case, please call the SAT on 9219 3111 and staff will assist you.
  • If you have documents to lodge at the SAT, please DO NOT bring them into the Tribunal. Instead, please send them to the SAT by email, post or fax.
  • If you are not directly involved in a proceeding in the SAT, please consider whether you need to come into the SAT building. That will assist in reducing the potential for transmission of COVID-19.

With regard to current and future listings of the Tribunal please note:

  • The SAT is continuing to operate.
  • Hearings and mediations will, save in exceptional circumstances, be conducted by telephone or video conference, rather than requiring the parties to attend in person. The SAT will contact parties, or make orders about this, when it lists matters for hearing. In respect to matters already listed for hearing the Tribunal will contact the parties directly.
  • The Tribunal will give priority to Guardianship and Administration Applications and matters that are assessed as urgent by Judges and Senior Members.
  • Mediations or hearings that are not assessed as urgent will be vacated by order of the Tribunal, these matters will be relisted with priority at a future date.
