Hi all,

I have just completed a trial in the WA Supreme Court self represented and the judge reserved the decision.

Now I am waiting for notification from the judge’s associate regarding the date for the decision hearing.

My question is; what procedure should I follow if I want a McKenzie Friend to accompany me to the decision hearing?

Do I need to ask leave from the Court for a McKenzie Friend to accompany me ?

Main reason is, if I wish to appeal, I may need to have an application form ready and, may need to give proper notice if I wish to appeal and I may need to ask for a Court Order to immediately notify the estate administrator that distribution may not occur if an appeal is being considered.

Thanks in advance
