Guidelines for Judges meeting Children who are subject to Family Proceedings - The purpose of these Guidelines is to encourage judges to enable children to feel more involved and connected with proceedings in which important decisions are made in their lives and to give them an opportunity to satisfy themselves that the Judge has understood their wishes and feelings and to understand the nature of the Judge’s task

What the Family Courts Expect from Parents - Guidelines to consider when you appear in court, produced by the Midland Regional Family Judges and Magistrates.

Here is an excellent and informative talk on the role of the court and of lawyers in difficult contact cases given by Sarah Phillimore, a prominent Bristol barrister and prolific participant on Twitter.
