Update from the Courts
Guidance has been issued in relation to the effect of COVID 19 and the running of the Family and Criminal courts.
Essentially the guidance is to keep the courts as “open for business” as possible, in an aim to continue to function and also to maintain the rule of law.
In order to be able to do this and in consideration of government advice to stay home, the courts are encouraging hearings to take place remotely, for example by Skype or telephone. Attendance should only take place where it is safe to do so.
In cases where you are represented by Woollcombe Yonge, we will contact you to confirm the procedure for a forthcoming hearing and explain whether or not you are required to attend. We will explain what this means for you.
The Courts are from today streamlining the number of courts in use. Locally most cases will be heard in Exeter and not Plymouth but this will not impact your case.
Our crime team continue to represent clients at the police station and court, and our family team can assist with urgent applications and advice during this pandemic
Please contact the person dealing with your case directly, or contact our office on 01752 660384.
"As a family we found the service provided to us was delivered with ’empathy’ and was in fact ‘outstanding’, we would most certainly recommend Woollcombe Yonge to friends.”
