How to order a civil transcript

To order a transcript for any Civil, Family or Tribunal matter in England or Wales, download the EX107 Form and follow the instructions here.

All County Court (Civil, Family and Tribunal) requests must be submitted to the Court in the first instance, with a copy to us, please.

Payment
For Parties to Proceedings and Interested Parties, payment of the full amount estimated (deposit) is required prior to the commencement of transcript production, unless you are an Account Customer. Payment can be easily made by direct deposit, credit card or BACS transfer. For Ministry of Justice orders, the agency will be invoiced for services.

Please note: the Court is required to approve some transcripts (and all Judgments) before they can be released to you. The time taken for the approvals process is beyond our control, but we will work with you to expedite this process as much as possible.
