Case Management System Project

A new Case Management System (CMS) is being developed for the Magistrates' Court of Victoria (MCV) and the Children's Court of Victoria (ChCV) which will bring enhanced access to justice for Victorians, through stronger information sharing and improving court processes.

The project is a joint initiative of MCV and ChCV, supported by Court Services Victoria. The new CMS will replace current IT systems, some of which are 30 years old. The CMS Project team is embedded within Court Services Victoria to deliver a product that meets the needs of the courts.

The new CMS strengthens the ability to capture and share appropriate information across the courts and key external parties including Victoria Police, Corrections Victoria and the Department of Health and Human Services.  

Civil Release: Case Management System Portal 

The CMS Portal is now available for civil cases at the Magistrates' Court of Victoria and child protection cases at the Children's Court of Victoria. These releases are the first steps in the broader transition project.

The CMS Portal is a secure system that provides external users the ability to:

  • request and gain access to a case lodged within the system
  • sign and/or authorise a document or form electronically
  • receive email notifications
  • view and search their own filings
  • lodge payments and refunds.
