Claiming Costs

Hello,


The my wife the applicant with her lawyer filled an application to appoint a family lawyer. They requested legal aid, but we were never going to get it because of the assets involved. The magistrate therefore told them they would have to file again and set down another hearing date.


This error on their part wasted about three hours of my time, away from work.


1.       Can I claim costs?


2.       If so what form do I use to do this? How do I do it?


Thank you for your help.

Quick and easy answer is to forget it. Everyone gets to waste time in court.
