The Court has issued new guidance on the use of email to the Courts.
The court encourages you to sign up to the Secure eMail (also known as CJSM) system if you have not already done so. In order to comply with our obligations under the Data Protection Act, we will only accept emails which contain personal data from solicitors using a secure source. Secure eMail provides you with the ability to email us securely.
There is more detailed training on the Secure eMail website (www.cjsm.justice.gov.uk) and this takes you through each of the processes step by step including signing up.
If we receive an email containing personal data from a non-CJSM address, we will advise you that it cannot be accepted and then delete the email. You can find further guidance on emailing the civil and family courts at www.justice.gov.uk/courts/email-guidance
