Private Law Working Group produces draft Child Arrangements Programme
The Private Law Working Group has produced a draft Child Arrangements Programme, which is available to download below. This Child Arrangements Programme will apply where a dispute arises between separated parents and/or families about the arrangements concerning children.
It is designed to assist families to reach safe agreements where possible out of the court setting. If parents/families are unable to reach agreement, and a court application is made, the CAP encourages swift resolution of the dispute through the court.
The President of the Family Division would welcome and value all comments from anyone with an involvement or interest in the family justice system on these proposals. Comments should be sent to Nicola Massally (Nicola.massally@judiciary.gsi.gov.uk) and Joanna Wilkinson (Joanna.wilkinson@judiciary.gsi.gov.uk).
Comments should be sent by 6 January 2014.
The Private Law Working Group was set up by the President of the Family Division in August 2013 under the chairmanship of Mr Justice Cobb. Its report, which has just been released, recommends the replacement of the Private Law Programme with an entirely new Child Arrangements Programme. The Working Group has prepared further draft documents and also approved an expectation document prepared by Cafcass.
The Draft Child Arrangement Programme is available to download here.
