unstar this property answer text <p>We’re investing £1 billion to modernise the justice system, making it easier to use and providing better value for the taxpayer. Our reforms will provide a range of ways to access our services (digital, paper and phone) so users can choose the way the want to interact with HMCTS at any given time. Our digital services are developed iteratively, meaning that we continuously refine them to ensure they are as simple and easy to use as possible. However, we know that this isn’t always an option for some people so our assisted digital support services help people who are less confident using online systems to use the digital services.</p><p>HMCTS is piloting face to face digital support in 18 locations. Paper forms will also remain for those who choose to use them and improvements are also being made to paper forms.</p><p>We recognise that we need to look further at how we support those who need help with the digital process. HMCTS is continuing to raise awareness of the support on offer to ensure those who require help in these pilot areas can access it. Community engagement in pilot locations is increasing the number of referrals and seven sites will be added to the face-to-face pilot in May.</p><p>Pilot face-to-face centres are able to identify and refer people who need digital support to use HMCTS services in their communities. Since starting this process in January 2019, take up of the service has increased week on week with 41 people now having had successful appointments. We are continuing to look at the ways we can ensure that people get the support that they need.</p>

Only if the offender refuses to pay, and the council believes it is worth pursuing, would the case be sent to county court and recorded as a ‘specified money claim’. However, centrally held information does not separately identify ‘failing to register on the electoral register’.</p>

In addition, data relating to domestic abuse cases handled by the family courts does not identify whether the applicant has previously been a perpetrator of domestic abuse.</p><p> </p><p>However, it is unacceptable for someone to use court processes to harass or abuse a former partner. The family court has wide powers to manage such situations, including striking out an action it views as an abuse of process, and the power to prevent a person from making further applications without prior permission of the court.</p><p> </p><p>This Government is committed to transforming the response to domestic abuse, and the recently published draft Domestic Abuse Bill and consultation response set out our ambitions in this area. We want to ensure that victims have the confidence to come forward and report their experience, safe in the knowledge that the justice system and other agencies will do everything they can both to protect and support them and their children and pursue their abuser.</p>
