Covid-19: Help, I need an urgent injunction. Is the court closed?
It can be unimaginably difficult to live in close quarters for a long period of time with an abuser.
If you are at risk of significant harm from a member of your household during this crisis you can obtain an urgent injunction for protection.
For immediate, life-threatening situations call police.
The family court building may be physically closed but it is not closed for business.
The Ministry of Justice is committed to keeping the justice system running throughout this crisis. It is working hard to adapt its services.
Hearings can be held on the telephone and, if all else fails, the court will hold a live hearing subject to social distancing.
