Frequently asked questions

If you need information about: Family Court of Western Australia

Your enquiry should be directed to the Family Court of Western Australia.

Live Chat with us if you need additional information about:

  • Applying to the court about divorce and family law

  • Procedural advice about your existing case

  • Information and support for the Commonwealth Courts Portal, including eFiling.

So that we can help you efficiently, it is important to note:

If you are waiting on the phone as well, you should hang up, the same staff manage the phone and live chat, this just creates a longer queue and we are trying to help as many people as possible.

If you already have a file or are a lawyer, you should have the file number ready. We will ask you some questions to verify your identity before we can provide you with information from your file.

Although court staff can assist with a range of matters, they cannot give you legal advice.

Live chat is open from 8.45am (AEST) Monday to Friday. The service is closed on Australian National Public Holidays.

Live chat may be closed temporarily during the day if we are dealing with a high volume of calls. If the service is closed you can wait until the service resumes or email us on with your enquiry.

Before using live chat please view our privacy policy and disclaimer.
