The Divorce and Matrimonial Courts re-designated to Family Courts


The Chief Justice, Her Ladyship Justice Torkornor has renamed the Divorce and Matrimonial Courts to Family Courts.

This is to reflect the “true scope of work and jurisdiction of the Courts”

This was contained in a release under the hand of the Judicial Secretary Her Ladyship Cynthia Pamela Addo Koranteng,


Per the letter addressed to all Judges and Staff of the Judicial Service, “The rationalization behind the change is to reflect the true scope of work and jurisdiction of the Courts, since matters beyond matrimonial causes such as adoption and maintenance of children are dealt with by this specialized division.”

The re-designation of this division of our courts will take effect from the 6th Day of May, 2024. Below is the notice from the leaned Judicial Secretary.
