Family justice system under increasing pressure

Recent figures from the HM Courts and Tribunal service have revealed a sharp rise in the number of care and supervision orders being heard by the family courts, reports the Law Society Gazette. There have also been record numbers of care applications made to the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass).

 

According to the head of Cafcass, this high number of cases has increased the pressure on the family justice system, including the courts.

 

The Gazette reports that the situation is likely to get worse, with the number of care cases continuing to increase at a time when the Government is planning to cut legal spending.
