MoJ Consultation - private law children cases

Assessing risk of harm to children and parents in private law children cases

The Ministry of Justice (MOJ) has launched a public call for evidence on how the family courts protect children and parents in private law children cases concerning domestic abuse and other serious offences.

The panel is particularly keen to receive evidence of any harm caused to children and/or parents during or following private law children proceedings, where there are allegations and/or evidence of domestic abuse or of other crimes creating a risk of harm to children or parents.

The aim is to better protect vulnerable parties in their journey through the courts and build a more detailed understanding of any harm caused during or following proceedings in these cases.


The consultation closes on 26 August 2019.
