Commonwealth Courts Portal

The Portal is a joint initiative of the Family Court of Australia, Federal Court of Australia and Federal Circuit Court of Australia and allows free web-based access to information about cases before these courts.

The Portal was launched in July 2007. The concept of a shared portal became a reality once all three jurisdictions shared the same electronic case management system which is the infrastructure upon which the Portal is based.

The Portal provides free web-based access to information about cases that are before these courts. After registering, lawyers and litigants can keep track of their cases, identify documents that have been filed and view outcomes, orders made and future court dates. Users log on using a single user ID and access multiple jurisdictions from a single central web-based system.

The Portal provides an ever increasing range of services which currently include:

Services planned for future implementation include:
