Survey to examine the impact of the pandemic on the family court system.
The President of the Family Division has announced the third consultation on the family court system. The focus is on remote, hybrid and in-person hearings in the family justice system and Court of Protection.
This survey will inform discussion and guidance about how the family courts should work as the pandemic continues, and beyond.
This third survey is shorter than the previous two and asks questions about what aspects of working remotely should be retained, what problems continue to be encountered and how best to address those, as well as asking about the experience of attending court in person.
The consultation survey is open to anyone with experience of the family court or court of protection during the pandemic - public and private family law proceedings, including proceedings in relation to financial remedies.
