New Podcast episode - Private Family Law - Debunking the myths
The latest episode in our podcast series turns the attention to private family law – which involves applications made to the courts to resolve disputes about arrangements for children, mostly between parents after separation or divorce. Linda Cusworth, who leads the private law stream of work for the Family Justice Data Partnership (funded by the Nuffield Family Justice Observatory), speaks to colleague Claire Hargreaves and to Anna Sinclair, Head of Private Law Reform for Cafcass Cymru. They talk about the role of Cafcass Cymru in private family law proceedings, discuss some of the research that has been undertaken in this area and how these new findings have challenged a number of challenges and misconceptions, and address the implications for policy and practice.
