Is Your Matter Being Heard Summarily?

Being heard summarily means being heard in the Magistrates’ Court. If that is what will happen in your case press “yes”.

Some charges can be heard summarily if the Magistrate accepts that the Magistrates’ Court is the appropriate place to hear the case. Or charges can be heard summarily if the Prosecution withdraws the more serious charges that were directing the matter to be heard in the higher Courts.

With the charges that were taking the matter to the higher Courts withdrawn your charges can now go through the summary process.

Often though cases resolve to be heard summarily as a plea. This doesn’t meant they have to go through all the stages of a summary case.

If your matter is not being heard summarily then press “No”.
