Please bear with us as the new content goes online. This has been a huge project. Over 1,000,000 words of content, and aimed at detailed process mapping of family law making it accessible for all.

We can confirm the Dyslexia and Court pack is back among 4 free download packs (accessed via our Shop page), with another 16 covering applications and various stages / aspects of the court process.

Bug Fixes
  • Due to a data corruption in our court forms library in early May, the old C100 form and certain others were restored by our web host in place of the new forms. This is now fixed, and required a full rebuild of the library. We took this opportunity to load additional forms for more specialist areas of family law.
  • Download packs. Some browsers don't recognise blank spaces in file names. We've renamed download files to adjust for this.
In Progress
  • Case law libraries - full content in stripped down html for fast loading - 4 libraries completed (Internal Relocation - Leave to Remove - Paternity Testing - Interim Contact case law uploaded including print and online versions of judgments). .
  • Parental Alienation - Section 91.14 - Occupation Orders - Shared Residence case law libraries in progress.
  • Family Law Dictionary - part complete.
  • Search functionality follows completion of content when a site map can be completed to power the integral search engine.
  • Children Act 1989 - to be built in our html format for reference.
  • CMEC/CSA page to be updated following recent changes.
  • A section on shared residence within child arrangement orders.
