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 release of the CMS Portal for civil cases of MCV will signal the start of the broader transition to consolidate the majority of systems associated with case management.  

 The CMS Portal will provide 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. 
  • Update stored payment details.  
  • Receive email notifications
  • View/ search their own filings
  • Lodge payments and refunds

When released, the CMS Portal will include Civil court documents migrated from eDocs. All other jurisdictions of MCV and ChCV will continue to utilise eDocs
