NTCAT is much less formal than a court. However, before you commence a proceeding, it is important to understand the processes and procedures NTCAT follows so you can present your case.  

When you commence a proceeding, NTCAT will send you orders with instructions on what to do next. Follow these instructions carefully to ensure your case runs smoothly. 

The information contained in this section relates to all NTCAT matters except for those commenced in the adult guardianship jurisdiction. Information in relation to commencing a proceeding under the Guardianship of Adults Act, is available here
