Q. If I can’t remember my hearing date and time, how can I acquire this information?
A. You can contact the Family Court between the hours of 8:00 am - 4:15 pm (Monday- Thursday) and 8:00 am - 4:00 pm (on Friday) except for Public Holidays and speak to a Customer Service Representative or any officer from the Listing Unit.
Q. Why upon entering the Family Court I am required to surrender my mobile phone and all other electronic items?
A. The Family Court tries to provide a safe and secure environment for both staff and customers of the Court, so leaving your phone at the security entrance will ensure that no items are lost in the Court’s environment. Also, because the hearing rooms are equipped with a digital audio system, the ring tone of mobile phones and other electronic items will disturb and disrupt the recordings of the matters.
Q. Can I send another person (relative or friend) to make an application on my behalf?
A. No, you cannot. All applications must be made by the person pursuing the complaint whether via an “in person application” or through an Attorney at Law.
