As part of the Family Court of Australia and Federal Circuit Court of Australia’s commitment to the Government’s digital continuity policy the courts are changing the way court orders are accessed.

Faster access to your orders online, anytime!

The move to digital court orders commenced in July 2017. From 1 January 2018 the courts will no longer post hard copies of sealed orders, including divorce orders by mail.

Court orders (except appeals and consent orders) will be signed and sealed electronically and available to download from the Commonwealth Courts Portal www.comcourts.gov.au.

These changes provide for faster and more secure delivery of court orders to all parties.
