Keeping informed – the Victim Notification Register
If you are a victim of a serious crime you have the legal right to be kept informed and updated about what’s happening to the offender as they move through the justice system.
To request a court document
Ask a Court Victim Advisor or the Registrar at the court where the case was heard. If the court has made a suppression order that doesn’t allow information to be published, you may not be able to access all the information you are wanting. This will be explained to you.
