    I am the Applicant and SRL in a Contravention Application in FCA. I'd like a witness, whose affidavit I already served and filed to all parties to adduce evidence from the witness box rather than relying on his affidavit.

    I just wanted to know the procedure - should I approach the registrar first and in what manner can I do that? Is there a form to fill out? Is there a prescribed timeframe?

    I studied the Family Law Rules 2004, particularly Chapter 15. Although it has provisions for notice for a deponent to attend cross-examination and for subpoenaing to give evidence by a person who had submitted affidavit on behalf of the other party, there is nothing in the Rules about getting my own witness for examination by both parties.
