What Happens In Court

A court accompaniment worker from the refuge can go with you to court and can meet you before hand to explain any part of the court procedures you do not understand. The clerk of the court in the local district court office can also answer any queries you may have.

All court cases are based on you giving evidence and your spouse/partner disputing that evidence if they want to.

It is helpful if you have clear and relevant evidence to support you in your application.

In the courtroom your solicitor or refuge accompaniment person will assist you.The judge will also answer any queries you have about the law.

It is important that you listen to questions from your solicitor or the judge carefully and that you answer the questions that your solicitor or the judge puts to you clearly.

If you don't understand anything that is going on in court you can ask your solicitor or the judge to explain what is going on before you agree to anything.
