International mutual legal assistance (Law Officers' Department)

​​​​Requests for mutual legal assistance

The Law Officers' Department is the central authority for requests for mutual legal assistance, including requests made under the various Hague Conventions, such as the service of documents in civil and matrimonial cases. 

Such requests should be addressed to HM Attorney General in the first instance and we will then arrange for service to be effected and a certificate of service returned to the requesting party.

Contact the Practice Manager if you need more help on approaching the department for advice (tel: +44 (0) 1534 441444)​.​


The Attorney General has issued general guidance to investigatory authorities in other jurisdictions who require mutual legal assistance in their own investigations.
