A Notice of Registration is a document indicating that a party has successfully registered a settlement agreement.
If you receive a Notice of Registration and do not agree to it, you may wish to apply to set aside the registration of the settlement agreement within 7 working days after receiving the Notice of Registration.
Filling an application to set aside does not mean that the registration of the settlement agreement will be automatically set aside.
After filing an application, both you and the other party will have to attend a hearing where the District Court will decide whether to allow or dismiss your application.
If you are applying to set aside the order, you are the applicant.
The other party is the respondent.
