Guidelines for judges to talk to children in court proceedings

10 MAY 2010

The Family Justice Council has published new Guidelines for judges prepared to meet children who are the subject of court proceedings. The Guidelines, which have been approved by the President of the Family Division, were prepared the Voice of the Child sub-committee of the Family Justice Council.

A DVD accompanies the Guidelines and will be distributed to all judges and magistrates in England and Wales. The DVD shows three young people expressing their views that judges should meet children who want to see them and that judges should be prepared to hear what children and young people have to say before making important decisions in their lives.
