COVID-19: Civil and Family Hearings: LATEST Tuesday 24 March 2020

No hearings which require people to attend in person are to take place in any civil or family court until further notice. The only exception is in the case of genuine urgency and that is likely to be limited to where the liberty of the subject is at stake. But, as I have previously reported, the court will conduct hearings remotely (by telephone, video link etc) wherever possible.
