The Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia provide an important duty for the Australian community, especially during a time of crisis.

The health and safety of the community, Judges and court staff is our priority, and therefore we have made further changes to our operations.

As of Tuesday 24 March, the Courts’ registry services will be provided remotely, by telephone and through other online services.

In urgent circumstances, face-to-face services in a registry may be provided, but only after initial assessment via telephone.

Members of the public and legal practitioners who have an enquiry can contact us on the following numbers:

Family law enquiries: 1300 352 000 
General Federal Law enquiries: 1300 720 980
