Dads' Survey


We really need all dads to fill this one in ASAP.

That includes dads who do live with mum!

Please fill it in for us and use Facebook to point friends to this survey.


Choices range from thinking of separating to needing to go to court and to checking using DNA if you are the parent.


Also Changes in Family Courts happening in April 2014

Details here

Going to Court

Link to C100 form, how to file your paperwork and lots of information about Courts and being a Litigant in Person.



The changes in Family Law that came into force in April 2014 mean that although there are exemptions, most of you have to have attempted mediation. This section will help you find mediators and show you where the C100 asks for information about mediation.

Steparents Forum



Volunteers' Support Forum

These are fledgling forums



The charity provides information, support and advice to parents and grandparents facing child contact problems and is a member of the independent advice providers forum Advice UK.


We believe that Court should be the last option to resolve contact difficulties. If this is unavoidable, we recommend that you look at resources produced by HMCTS to help you understand the process. These can be found by clicking on Going to Court in the box above for more information. Please note that HMCTS is in the process of updating some of its resources to go alongside the changes in the Family Law that came in this April, for example a form CB7 is still available but has not yet been updated. We expect this will all be sorted very shortly.
