Emails and faxes

Sometimes you may be able to use facsimile (fax) or email to communicate with other parties involved in your legal dispute or the courts.

You can communicate by email or fax rather than letter. In some circumstances you can send legal documents as attachments to an email or fax, rather than sending them by post.

When you do this it is useful to also provide information either:

  • in the email to describe why and how you are sending the legal documents
  • in the form of a fax cover sheet so the recipient knows what is being sent to them, who is sending it and why.
