FCFCOA protocol updated

The Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia has an updated protocol which now applies in all states except Western Australia.

The court’s Special Measures Information Notice – COVID-19 Hearing Protocol has been updated to allow the court to continue operate safely and sensibly in the current COVID-19 climate.

Chambers staff will be seeking an assurance from the legal representative for each party that all participants proposed to attend an in-person hearing are at least double-vaccinated.

Other COVIDSafe measures and precautions will also remain in place, including social distancing, density limits, the wearing of face masks and the use of the QR check-in.
