What is happening with my Court Case?

Almost all Civil Court cases have been postponed to a date that is yet to be determined and only cases that are considered ‘urgent’ are calling. We appreciate that you will understandably feel that your case is urgent but, like other workplaces, the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service have had to make changes to adapt to social distancing guidelines and to keep their staff and the public safe during the pandemic. This means that how the courts and tribunals operate is temporarily changing. We expect there to be regular announcements and changes to civil court business in the coming days and weeks. These will be displayed by Scottish Courts Service on their website https://www.scotcourts.gov.uk

If your case involves a Child Welfare Hearing or the attendance at court of witnesses, then at the moment it is likely to be postponed until further notice. 


What civil cases are being dealt with?   At the moment, ‘urgent’ cases are continuing. To decide whether your case is ‘urgent’, the Sheriff will need to review the information and circumstances around it and for now, these hearings will take place by teleconference or written representations.The Courts have identified the civil court work they will prioritise as urgent during the pandemic:  child protection orders; urgent child residence and contact applications; interim interdicts and urgent protective orders; urgent applications re Adults with Incapacity

There is a list with more details here.

If you are unsure whether your case will be heard during the pandemic, call or email us now.
