Covid-19 and Family Court of Australia

With Melbourne currently in the midst of yet another lockdown as a result of the recent spread of Coronavirus, it’s important to know that the Courts remain up and running throughout this period. 

Did you know that there is a special dedicated COVID-19 Court List within the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia? The COVID-19 List operates to deal exclusively with urgent family law matters that have arisen as a direct result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
