Proceeds of Crime – Revoking an Ancillary Order


Revoking an Ancillary Order

If a person is affected by an ancillary order[1] and the order was heard without notice,[2] the person can apply to revoke the order within 14 days after the person was notified of the ancillary order.[3]

While the application is on foot, the ancillary order is stayed until the court determines the application.[4] The court can revoke the ancillary order on application if it considers it appropriate to do so[5] and in doing so, the court may have regard to any matter it considers appropriate in determining the application.[6]
