Request for information

To make a request for information, you must provide proof of identification, such as a photo ID or a signed authority. If you do not provide identification we cannot process your request.

Section 55 of the Legal Aid Act (NT) prevents disclosure of any information to a third party without the written consent of the client. Accordingly, you may only access information that is held on your file(s). Please note that some records cannot be disclosed.

Before you can access your own information, you must provide:

  1. photographic ID (copies of ID must be certified for online or postal applications)
  2. sufficient information to allow identification of the documents you request
  3. payment* for retrieving any files archived off-site (minimum charge $30)
  4. payment* of fee ($0.60/page) if information requested is more than 30 pages (no page fee up to 30 pages).

Before you can access information as an agent on behalf of a client, you must provide the following:

  1. signed consent and/or authority from the client
  2. photographic ID (copies of ID must be certified for online or postal applications)
  3. sufficient information to allow identification of the documents you request
  4. payment* for retrieving any files archived off-site (minimum charge $30)
  5. payment* of fee ($0.60/page) if information requested is more than 30 pages (no page fee up to 30 pages).

*Fees do not apply to every information request. You will be provided with a quote and payment options if fees apply.
