Can a divorce be transferred to a fast-track court?
Yes, a divorce case can be transferred to a fast-track court. However, there are certain conditions that must be met.
How to transfer a divorce case to a fast-track court
To transfer a divorce case to a fast-track court, you must file an application with the family court where the case is currently pending. The application must state the reasons why you are seeking to transfer the case to a fast-track court.
The family court will consider your application and decide whether or not to transfer the case. The court will take into account the following factors when making its decision:
- The age of the parties
- The length of time that the case has been pending
- The complexity of the case
- Whether or not there are any children involved in the case
- Whether or not there is any risk of domestic violence
If the family court decides to transfer the case to a fast-track court, it will issue an order transferring the case. The order will specify the date and time of the first hearing in the fast-track court.
It is important to note that fast-track courts are not available in all jurisdictions. If you are considering transferring your divorce case to a fast-track court, you should consult with a lawyer to determine whether or not it is possible in your jurisdiction.

- File your application early.
- Be prepared to attend a hearing in the family court to argue your case.
If you have any questions about transferring your divorce case to a fast-track court, you should consult with a lawyer. A lawyer can help you to understand the process and to increase your chances of success.
