Government promises overhaul of family courts - RCEW press release

29/6/2020

Rape Crisis England and Wales have issued a press release about the Government review of the family court, emphasising how the report has highlighted the 'pro-contact culture' of the family court – in which courts place undue priority on ensuring contact with the non-resident parent, resulting in the systematic minimisation or disbelief of victims and survivors domestic abuse, child sexual abuse and other serious offences. 

 

CARA submitted evidence to the review, reflecting the experiences of a number of our service-users and we are quoted in the press release.
