Hi I am just reading this now
There isnt a presribed form but you need to file a notice of intention to appear, and file affidavits in support. If you are all opposed you can use the same form to indicate this. Is there a reason you oppose this person named in the application? I will post a form you can used, based on the front page of the documents you have filed
If there is an existing EPOA then there would need to be very good reasons to change this. I would suggest you get a lawyer to oppose but the form to base the appearance on is pasted below-adapt so it looks like the forms served on you
In the District Court
at File No CIV
In the Matter of
NOTICE OF OPPOSITION
TAKE notice that (your names) intend to oppose the interlocutory application by the (person making application) dated the [ insert date] and for hearing on the [insert date].
[your names] are opposed to the making of the orders numbered [what is used] in the notice of application.
The grounds on which [your names] opposes the making of the orders are [concisely state grounds].
[your names] relies upon [Protection of Personal and Property Rights Act 1988].
Dated [insert date].
Signed by [your names]
To: ***** of the District Court at [Court where this is heard]
And to: ***** *****
Our address for service of documents is at [insert physical address]
Yes, you can use this like that. i suggest you take the form down to the court and make sure they are ok with it. You should still preferably instruct a lawyer though
I dont handle the accounting side, just the law. So send a query to***@******.***
I hope this helps
