A request for an order must be made in the appropriate court office and must be accompanied by:
(i) the receiving party’s bill of costs (unless the full costs have already been determined);
(ii) the receiving party’s statement of resources (defined below);
(iii) if the receiving party intends to seek costs against the Lord Chancellor, written notice to that effect.
The request may be made formally (Form N244, in respect of which a court fee is payable) or informally (by way of a letter to the court).
