HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) has launched online services for legal professionals.

MyHMCTS provides a centralised place for legal firms and other organisations to issue, pay for and manage applications falling within the jurisdiction of the County Court, Family Court and tribunals.

The online service allows users to:

  • access all live cases from a single case list
  • receive notifications of any status changes (such as an order being made)
  • enable others within the firm / organisation to access cases.

Currently, only probate and divorce online services are available to legal professionals through MyHMCTS.

Once signed up to the service, you’ll automatically get access to new services as they become available. You’ll also be able to see your cases progressing online in one place without having to log in and out of individual services. This should remove the need to telephone, email, or visit an HMCTS venue to establish what is happening on a given case.
