Renewed President's Interim Guidance
Date:31 MAR 2010

The President of the Family Division, Sir Mark Potter, has announced he is extending the Interim Guidance intended to assist Cafcass for a further six months.

Changes within the Renewed Interim Guidance, which expires on 30 September 2010, have been kept to a minimum. The two main alterations are: changes as a result of the issue of the Revised Private Law Programme Practice Direction and the introduction from 6 April 2010 of a new application form for section 31 Children Act 1989 applications and; certain changes in recognition of possible management difficulties resulting from the wording of the original Guidance.
