A slightly different notification process is being used in the Adelaide Magistrates Court. View here to find out more information.
In some circumstances, you may be held in custody to appear in court at the first available opportunity. This must be by 4pm on the first working day after the day on which you were arrested.
Usually, you will be required to appear in the court nearest to where the alleged offence was committed. You can request that your case be transferred to another court (for example, if you live closer to another court), but you can only do so if you intend pleading guilty to the charge. Here is a full list of court locations.
In recent years, specialist courts have been established to deal with offenders with particular problems or circumstances. Examples of specialist courts are the Drug Court, the Court Diversion (mental impairment) Program, the Domestic Violence Court and the Aboriginal Court. If appropriate, your case may be transferred to a specialist court.
