In the August issue of Family Law (available online from 3 August) His Honour Judge John Altman, Senior Designated Family Judge for London at the Central Family Court, outlines his new initiative for early resolution – the Family Solutions Court (FSC).

The FSC is being launched in London today, 16 July 2015.

Grouped together on the same floor, the components of the FSC in Holborn, London, are:
  • The new ‘Time Together’Contact Centre. 
  • The ‘pro bono’scheme. 
  • Mediation and MIAMS (Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings) 
  • The Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) itself. 
  • The Personal Support Unit (PSU). 
  • The Separated Parents Information Programme (SPIPS).
Judge Altman describes how the FSC works and the effect it will have:

‘By this time next year I would hope that we have reduced the number of contested hearings necessary in many private law applications to the court, and to create a structure for those families who need help in managing their disputes around the living arrangements for their children.'
