About CourtNav

Welcome to CourtNav, a digital service provided by RCJ Citizens Advice.

This digital tool has been developed to help you in putting together an application for an injunction (a protective court order). Using CourtNav you can apply for either a Non-Molestation order, an Occupation Order or both.

CourtNav is divided into a number of sections and questions that you can answer all at once, or you can save sections as you go along and submit when you are ready. The answers that you provide are then used to generate and fill out the relevant court form and supporting statement to apply for an injunction. There is supporting guidance throughout CourtNav and opportunities for you to ask questions, we hope you find it user-friendly and helpful.

Once you have submitted your application, it will be sent to a law firm of your choice. The legal advisor at the firm will explore legal aid with you. If you wish to access legal aid or pay private fees, your case will remain with the firm and the legal advisor. If you choose not to access legal aid or pay privately, then your case can be checked by the legal advisors at RCJ Advice.

Please note that by completing an application on CourtNav, that you are not making an application straight to Court. All CourtNav applications will be checked by a Legal Adviser, who will then advise you on the best course of action which may not necessarily be an application to the court.

You can use CourtNav with the help of a support worker if you have one (for example an IDVA, domestic abuse worker or Citizens Advice adviser). Alternatively you can register to use CourtNav by yourself. If you are a woman, you can also get assistance via the FLOWS service.
