Representing Yourself in Scottish Family Court

This updated edition of our user guide for party litigants in child contact court cases was published at the Shared Parenting Scotland AGM on 30th November. It’s been updated to cover recent changes including the workings of family courts during Covid restrictions and includes information about the forthcoming changes that will result from the implementation of the Children (Scotland) Act 2020.

Commenting at the launch, National Manager Ian Maxwell said: “We hope this new edition will be useful both to people representing themselves but also to anyone who is involved in a family court case. It explains the processes and procedures involved in starting or defending a case and the terms and phrases that can be confusing for anyone drawn into legal processes for the first time. Over a thousand copies of the guide have been downloaded from our website over the last 10 years.”
