Circuit Family Court otions for 11 December

Family law motion lists before the Dublin County Registrar, which have been adjourned since 22 October, will be now be listed for hearing on Thursdays and Fridays during December.

The 11 December hearings will be subject to all current public-health restrictions and will be dealt with in staggered lists, according to the most recent Courts Service update.

Once the adjourned motions hearings are relisted, new matters will then issue in due course.

The list to fix dates will then be heard on 17 December

Public-health guidelines

Arrangements are in place to ensure compliance with HSE distancing requirements. Practitioner co-operation is both requested and appreciated.

  2. Only one representative for each party to attend court, who must be able to deal with the matter,
  3. Motions will not be transferred to the judge's list for hearing on the same day,
  4. The parties must leave court and take all belongings at the expiry of the allotted time,
  5. All affidavits and exhibits musts be filed in the Circuit Court Family Law Office not later than 72 hours prior to the hearing, as documents will not be accepted in court. When filing documents for upcoming court attendance, ensure the court office is notified of the correct record number, date and time of hearing of the matter,
  6. The moving party must lodge a clean, complete, indexed and paginated book of pleadings and proceedings for the court for the application not later than 72 hours prior to the hearing, as documents cannot be accepted in court. Ensure the court office is notified of the correct record number, date and time of hearing of the matter,
  7. Where the respondent to the motion is a lay litigant, the moving party must inform the lay litigant of the hearing date and time,
  8. The consent email address cannot be used for County Registrar motions. Case progression and lists to fix dates and all applications for orders on consent must now be made in court when the matter is listed for hearing.
