Who are CAFCASS?

CAFCASS, the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service, looks after the interests of children involved in family proceedings.

It is a service that is independent of the courts and social services, but works under the rules of the Family Court and legislation to work with children and their families to advise the courts on what is considered to be in the best interests of individual children.

CAFCASS will be initially involved in all applications made to the Family Court in respect of a Child Arrangements Order. Their level of involvement going forward will depend upon the specific circumstances involved in that particular matter.

If you would like any further advice in respect of family proceedings or making an application to the Court for a Child Arrangements Order, George Green’s specialist Family Lawyers would be able to assist. If you wish to discuss your matter in a free initial telephone consultation call Mark Vandaele on 01902 796930 (mvandaele@georgegreen.co.uk) at our Wolverhampton office or Rachel Baker on 01384 340 580 (rbaker@georgegreen.co.uk) at our Cradley Heath office.
