If you have an upcoming telephone or video hearing, one of our volunteers may be able to support you. Please contact our National Helpline on 03000 810 006
For information about our National Helpline click here.
We can offer you support at remote hearings in the civil and family courts by talking through the process, providing practical and procedural information as well as emotional support.
On the day of your remote hearing we may be able to join the proceedings (either by phone or video depending on the format the court has decided upon). We can make brief informal notes of what was said during the hearing and can discuss these with you at a later stage. Please be aware that we cannot provide legal advice or speak for you during the hearing.
