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.

The Family Courts are about to undergo significant change from 22nd April 2014 with the introduction of the Single Family Court and the consequential changes brought about by the Children and Families Act 2014. Most significant is the removal of Residence and Contact Orders and their replacement with a Child Arrangement Order.

Useful links to the new details can be accessed here:


We'll update our own resources on the processes as they impact in Wales as soon as we can.

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. You will also find Form CB7 inside the HMCTS box within the Going to Court box. Form CB7 is very informative and clear.

There is also a document called Putting Your Children First by CAFCASS in England which is worth reading as soon as you start thinking of separating.
