Register for Courtnav

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

If you live in England or Wales, you can use CourtNav to provide information that will be used to complete an application for a Non-Molestation and/or Occupation Order.

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, by submitting an application on CourtNav you are not making an application directly 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 access this online tool 24 hours a day. Should you have any technical difficulties accessing CourtNav you can either email the team at CourtNav@rcjadvice.org.uk or call us on 0203 974 7899. Our technical support services can be accessed between 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday and 10am – 12 midday on Saturdays. There is no legal advice available from our technical support services.

This form is only for individuals who are experiencing domestic abuse and wish to apply for a non-molestation or occupation order. If you are interested in CourtNav for any other reason, please contact us at CourtNav@rcjadvice.org.uk

You may wish to set up a new email account / address for this online application. If you believe that the person you are applying for protection from has access to your current email account, then this is important for your safety. Please also read our guidance on Staying Safe Online
