Whatever happened to the Pre-Proceedings Protocol?

Alistair Macdonald, Co-Chair Association of Lawyers for Children, Barrister, St Philips Chambers, Birmingham. Alistair Macdonald discuses the urgent need for a Pre-Proceeding Protocol in Child Care Proceedings and outlines the challenges it faces in acting as an interpreter, allowing those speaking the language of Part III of the Children Act 1989 to speak effectively the language of Part IV.

The article recommends a detailed model for the Pre-Proceeding Protocol covering its structure, core principles and process. For the full article see November [2007] Fam Law.
