Thank you for contacting us. Over the summer holiday we are not as available as usual, so we hope the information here will be helpful to you. We will get back to you after the August bank holiday.
Our next picket of the Central Family Court is on Wednesday 6 September, 12.30 – 1.30pm.
If you want to attend our next self help meeting for mothers/primary carers please send an email and we’ll get back to you. If you haven’t been before please answer the questions here Link, and email them back to us.
If your case is urgent, please contact your nearest Law Centre or Citizens Advice Bureau and see if they can help. There is general information about the family court process here. You can also have a look at our draft self-help guide, which will be up in the next few days.
If you are in London, the Personal Support Unit at the Central Family Court can help you with understanding the court process and filling in forms, but NOT legal advice. You can call 0207421 8534/3 to make an appointment to see an advisor. There is also an advice service at the Royal Courts of Justice. You can apply to the Bar Pro Bono Unit for a barrister to represent you (they need at least three weeks’ notice of a hearing).
