Family justice review : interim report by Great Britain ( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The legal framework of family justice in England and Wales is strong. Its principles are right, in particular the starting point that the welfare of children must be paramount. Every year 500,000 parents and children are involved in the system. But the system is under great strain: cases take far too long (the average case took 53 weeks in 2010); too many private law disputes end up in court; the system lacks coherence; there is growing mistrust leading to layers of checking and scrutiny; little mutual learning or feedback; a worrying lack of IT and management information. The Review's recommendations aim: to bring greater coherence through organisational change and better management; making the system more able to cope with current and future pressures; to reduce duplication of scrutiny to the appropriate level; and to divert more issues away from the courts. The chapters of the review cover: the current system; the proposed Family Justice Service; public law; private law; financial implications and implementation; and there are eighteen annexes. The proposals are now out for consultation, with the final report due in autumn 2011

Outcomes of applications to court for contact orders after parental separation or divorce by Joan Hunt ( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report examines the outcomes of applications to court for contact orders after parental separation or divorce in Great Britain. The study draws largely upon 300 court files on cases where an application for a contact order was made under Section 8 of the Children Act 1989. This Act is used in cases where parents cannot agree on contact - normally parents are free to determine their own arrangements, and there is no statutory presumption that there should be contact. However, public policy and case law strongly promotes the maintenance of children's relationships with both of their parents. This study investigates several aspects: the outcome of cases, in particular the duration, frequency and mode of contact; the relationship between parent expectations and case outcome; the process through which outcomes were reached, such as adjudication or concilation; and the circumstances, reasons and explanations behind the cases, including arguments and evidence presented, legal recommendations, and court judgments. Reasons presneted include allegations of child abuse, domestic violence, and parental alienation syndrome
