Family Law & Childcare Literature

This portal was established by the Multidisciplinary Sub-Committee of the Children Order Advisory Committee. Its purpose is to facilitate access to a selection of summaries of articles, books and literature within the various disciplines in family justice and childcare and to raise awareness of this literature on an interdisciplinary basis. The portal will be updated regularly with the titles and summaries of articles and literature submitted by the members of the sub-committee.

Please click on the relevant title to view the documents. You may also click on the heading of each column to sort by Date, Title, Summary or Status.

If you wish to search for a particular publication please type keywords into the Search box on the top right-hand side of the screen. This will search the entire website. Please click here for help on searching.

Some of the documents from this section of our website have been archived. If you are not able to find what you are looking for, you should in the first instance check the list of archived Family Law & Childcare Literature documents, which can be found by using this link. Should you require a copy of any document you see listed in the archived Publications page you can contact the Communications Group by email and our team will happy to provide the same for you.

Documents published on this site before 12 April 2010 are designated as "pre-devolution". Some are of an historical nature and will remain unchanged as they are provided solely for reference.

Information leaflets about how to use Courts and Tribunals services which still carry our old title and logo are in the process of being renamed and re-branded. We would wish to make clear that the material they contain is still valid. We thank you for your co-operation during this updating process.
