This short guide explains what remote court hearings are and how they will work. It answers some common queries that users may have.

We hope that it will be useful for parents involved in family court cases about their children – or for anyone else involved in family court cases, regardless of whether or not they have a lawyer. Lawyers could provide a copy of this document to their clients before a hearing and courts could provide a copy to litigants.

We have a small favour to ask! 

The Transparency Project is a registered charity in England & Wales run largely by volunteers who also have full-time jobs. We’re working hard to secure extra funding so that we can keep making family justice clearer for all who use the court and work within it.

Our legal bloggers take time out at their own expense to attend courts and to write up hearings.

We’d be really grateful if you were able to help us by making a small one-off (or regular!) donation through our Just Giving page.

Thanks for reading!
