President of the Family Division launches public and private law consultation

A new consultation has opened relating to children cases in family courts, with a submission closing date of 30 September 2019.

In Autumn 2018 the President of the Family Division, and Patron of National Family Mediation, Sir Andrew McFarlane, established two cross-professional Working Groups, to look at practices and processes in public and private law.

The Interim Reports of both these Working Groups are now available and are open for consultation.

National Family Mediation will be responding to the consultation, drawing together views from members across its professional family mediation network.
