Section 19 Application:

Overview FAQs Articles Locations

Under Section 18 of the Mental Health and Cognitive Impairment Forensic Provisions Act 2020, where an individual, who is mentally ill or mentally disordered, is charged with committing a criminal offence, that individual may be dealt with under Division 3 of the Act. 

Section 19 of the Act allows a Court, if appropriate, to send the charged individual to a hospital in order to be assessed.

Alternatively, the Court may make an Order for the discharge of the person, unconditionally or subject to conditions, into the care of a responsible person. 

At Navado, our Mental Health Lawyers are able to assist you with understanding your rights and obligations in relation to your position. 

Furthermore, if you are seeking legal advice and believe you require representation in Court and wish to seek an Order under the above Act, our team of Mental Health Lawyers can work closely with our Criminal Lawyers to ensure you are provided with sufficient and professional advice and representation.

If you would like to speak with one of our Mental Health Lawyers or Criminal Lawyers regarding a Section 33 Application, we invite you to contact our Head Office by telephone on (02) 9233 4048 or send us an email to info@navadco.com.au
