Can cases that are already in the Court (filed before the commencement of Lighthouse) be risk screened?

No, unfortunately matters filed prior to 28 November 2022 are unable to be retrospectively risk screened.

Risk screening is only offered to eligible Initiating Applications and corresponding Responses filed on or after 28 November 2022, unless the matter was eligible in the Lighthouse pilot (filed on or after 7 December 2020 in Adelaide, or on or after 11 January 2021 in Brisbane or Parramatta).

For more information see What cases are eligible for Lighthouse? above.

If you have any safety concerns please see Safety at Court or if you would like further assistance please see Family violence: Get help and support.
