HMCTS Care Monitoring Scheme Guidance for Practitioners
Date:13 APR 2012

The HMCTS is piloting a new case management system in the family courts that will track every public law case issued and will replace the systems which are presently in use.

The new system, which came into effect on 2 April, provides judges/legal advisers/benches with ongoing information updated for every hearing about the ages of the child or children they are dealing with, the length of time a case has been running, the number of hearings which there have been, any adjournments of hearings and applications for experts.
