You can read all about the introduction of what is to be Part 3A of the court rules here and here.

We continue to be concerned about the lack of clarity in the reports, the draft rules, and generally what is intended with regard to participation of children and vulnerable aduts in family court proceedings.

We have submitted a brief response on the consultation on the new draft rules. We do not think they have been written in a way that is easy for anyone (public or proessional) to understand, and we hope that there will be some re-drafting,

Here is our response – Transparency Project response Part 3A

It would be interesting to see other responses – links to any that have been published would be welcome.
