Security for costs

An application for security for costs is where you are seeking an order which requires a party to pay money into court (or otherwise) as security for their opponent’s costs of litigation. It tends to be used in circumstances where a party is impecunious or is based outside the jurisdiction and therefore there are concerns about the other party being able to pay costs which may be awarded against them.
