Children and Families Act

A number of the reforms to the family justice system introduced by the Children and Families Act came into effect in 2015. The Act contains provisions that affect a wide range of areas including family law, children in care and education.

It can be quite confusing to find out what has changed, and what the effects of these changes might be. We have produced a short briefing supplement (available below) for FNF members which examines the Act, and highlights the key changes to private family law.

The briefing includes a summary of the Act, and analysis from former FNF CEO Dr Craig Pickering. It also features an exclusive interview with Dame Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, in which she talks about her involvement in the legislative process and the Act’s potential impact. Dame Butler-Sloss also calls for a greater focus on enforcement measures in the family courts.

We hope this Briefing will be of interest to you; if you have any questions about how the Act may impact upon your situation, please contact one of our support services.
