Temporary Closure of Bristol Civil and Family Justice Centre

Bristol Civil & Family Justice Centre

The main Bristol Family Court building on Redcliff Street in Bristol has suffered a serious flood and will not be opening for some time. Hearings are being held in other local court buildings in Bristol and the locality (largely Bristol Magistrates or Crown Courts). There is a temporary court office at the Magistrates court on Marlborough Street (by the bus station) and temporary phone numbers to use. These and other details are set out in a letter from the Court Manager, which you can read here.

Please note, although this site is described in that letter as “The Family Court website” we are independent of the judiciary and Court Service, although we are very happy to disseminate this and other information to court users and will post updates as and when we have them. Any queries about these arrangements should be directed to the court using the contact details provided in the letter.
