Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

You may be offered a remote hearing by phone or video.

Due to the coronavirus, we’re taking longer to answer calls and emails. Please only contact us if necessary. For example, you have a hearing confirmed and need to change the date because you’re self-isolating.


The County Court and Crown Court are suspended (temporarily closed)

We’ll contact you to let you know if your hearing will:

- take place remotely by phone or video

- be postponed to a future date
