COVID-19 update: online and telephone services only for Newcastle registry

There will be no face-to-face services in the Court’s Newcastle registry, unless otherwise approved by the Head of Jurisdiction, until Monday 13 September 2021.

We are still open to support litigants and the profession through a range of online and phone services.

These precautionary measures will assist to reduce the need to travel and leave home for residents in the Hunter and Upper Hunter regions. Developments will be monitored and arrangements may change at short notice based on New South Wales Government health advice and restrictions.

The Court remains open electronically, and urgent applications and other hearings will be conducted electronically as appropriate. This includes through the COVID-19 List, which can accommodate any urgent or priority family law applications connected to COVID-19.

Enquiries relating to the Court should be directed to 1300 352 000.
