MARACs and disclosure into court proceedings
Date:9 JAN 2012

This guidance from the Working Party of the Family Justice Council sets out the procedure for disclosure of documents or other information from multi-agency risk assessment conferences (MARACs). MARACs collate information about high risk cases of domestic abuse with a view to creating a co-ordinated safety plan for the victim and children (if any). The work is case specific and all relevant agencies (both statutory and voluntary) will attend at or contribute to the conference. MARACs can therefore appear a valuable source of information in court proceedings where domestic abuse may be an issue.
