My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
You need to let the court know and the other side that you are unable to attend and seek an adjournment.
Even if you have a barrister appearing for you, it is common courtesy that they notify and provide evidence to the court and the other side to get the adjournment.
You wil not have to appear and the court will accept the letter from the doctor and give you a new date.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
