Judges together spent an average of 316 hours a month dealing with "without notice" applications in the Family Court in the year to 30 April 2016.
With a total of 13,543 such applications over the year, this means that Family Court Judges spent an average of 16 minutes and 48 seconds on each application.
Justice Minister Amy Adams has released information on judicial time spent on "without notice" applications in response to a parliamentary question from Labour MP Louisa Wall.
Releasing the information, Ms Adams said judicial time dealing with "without notice" applications has been interpreted as the hours spent on e-Duty events by Judges.
