Consultation: Transparency in the Family Court

  |   Latest News, Updates from the Bench

In August we posted the President’s recent consultation paper which addresses the proposals for next steps in improving transparency in the Family Court.


I understand that any responses ought to be submitted by 3rd October 2014, although it is likely that responses will still be received and considered for some time after that date.  I have provided my own response and would strongly encourage others to do the same.  The consultation paper raises significant issues which require the input of practitioners “at the coal face”.


A copy of the consultation paper, which includes details of how to respond, can be downloaded here.
