Launch of pre-court information for Family Law Users

23rd February 2022

The Courts Service are delighted to inform you of the launch of multi-media pre-court information for family law court users on the Courts Service website and YouTube channel.

As part of the Family Law Reform Programme, we spoke with our service users and listened to their experiences. They told us that attending court for the first time is stressful and confusing. There was very little information available to help them know what to expect.

We engaged with a wide range of people who identified and tested the type of information that would be useful, including – Courts Service staff, judiciary, legal practitioners, NGOs/Advocacy groups and some members of the public who had recent cases in the family courts.

This information will help our service users better prepare for their court visit and have a clearer understanding of what to expect when in the court building.
