The Judiciary has expanded its video conferencing capability in order to hear urgent cases virtually.

It also reports that it has managed to reconfigure its operations to be able to service the public electronically, as far as possible.

In its latest advisory on measures implemented to ensure that the operations of the justice system continue run smoothly during the current COVID-19 crisis, the Judiciary has provided email addresses and phone numbers for various divisions providing critical court services to the public.

The Judiciary also notes that outstanding tickets and fines do not need to be paid until April 20th.

The full advisory from The Judiciary, inclusive of contact information for the various courts and divisions, follows…

SERVICES OF THE COURTS

Dear Court Customers,

At the top of our minds are two things:

1. Access to Justice

2. Safety of our staff and publics

Consequently, we have worked to incorporate technology to provide service for urgent matters, as far as possible, without you needing to leave your home and come to court buildings.  For non-urgent matters, which may still be important to you, we have taken other measures such as extending your time for payment of tickets and fines.  These do not have to be paid until at the earliest, April 20. 

Should you require a service from the Judiciary, please feel free to use the table of services below, as well as the directory of email addresses and telephone numbers also provided below.  Send us an email with sufficient details about your query or issue and if this is not possible, give us a call and we will advise you how you can engage our services for urgent matters.  In both instances, we have provided electronic channels to have your issues addressed.

If you need a service that is not deemed urgent at this time, you are encouraged to call the relevant court (again using the directory below) and a representative will advise you.  

If you have maintenance to pay, please pay it.  It’s important!  If you contact us we can help you do this without leaving home.

The Courts will be sitting virtually to hear urgent matters, and other matters the court deems fit, online
