Hearings can be observed by any member of the public. This is subject to a Judge or Registrar’s usual discretion to determine that in particular cases, only certain people should be present during the hearing, or that certain people are not to be present during the hearing. If a member of the public wishes to observe, or listen in to, an electronic hearing, please contact the Chambers of the presiding Judge or Registrar via email by 8.30am on the morning of the hearing.
If you are making an enquiry for someone else, the Court may be limited in the information or response we are able to provide.
Where possible, the person should make their enquiry themselves.
The Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of country throughout Australia and acknowledges their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to the people, the cultures and the elders, past, present and emerging.
