The opening of the East London Family Court marks another vital step in the changes to the way family cases are dealt with in London. It will improve access to family justice for Londoners. I congratulate all who have worked so hard to bring it to fruition.Family justice minister Simon Hughes said:
East London Family Court will help transform the way court cases involving children are dealt with in London. The new streamlined system will make sure cases can be dealt with as quickly as possible and vulnerable children are better protected. The opening of this court is yet another part of the process to create a family justice system with children and young people firmly at its heart.East London Family Court will take public law work from Tower Hamlets, Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Newham, Waltham Forest, Redbridge, Sutton, Croydon, Bromley and Bexley, and private law work from those Boroughs as well as Greenwich and Lewisham.
