Guide to Child Welfare Reports

This is a guide for parents in Scottish family court hearings. We’re often asked questions by parents when Child Welfare Reports are requested and since we published this guide it has been used by hundreds of parents. The guide outlines what a Child Welfare Report is, the procedure (including what kind of questions you might be asked and how the interview will be run), what will be in the Report and how you can challenge it if necessary, and finally details on the cost of a Child Welfare Report.
