Family Law

The leading authority on all aspects of family law

12 SEP 2008

Consultation launched on Family Guidance proposals

The Community Legal Service (CLS) has launched a consultation on changes to the family guidance in the Legal Services Commission Manual.

They reflect the bringing in of the Children and Adoption Act 2006 in the autumn, the roles and responsibilities of Cafcass and Cafcass Cymru.

Specifically the CLS wants to receive feedback on: the list of non-allowable disbursements in family cases (Volume 3, Part C - para 2.5); the guidance on excluded work (Volume 1, Part D - paras 5.7 and 5.9), and; the guidance on assessments of suitability for family mediation (Volume 3, Part C - para 20.9).

The consultation will run until 21 October 2008.
