Children and the family court

Sometimes it is appropriate for a child to communicate their views directly to court, and a Cafcass worker can help with this.

The leaflet CB7 also provides information about children’s communication with the court. If it is necessary for someone else to listen to your child it is important that you encourage your child to express their own (not your) views. The CB7 leaflet can be found here.

There is information on the Cafcass website that might help your child express their views, that you can find here.
