The government is launching an online event in April to showcase improvements it has been working on for the UK’s family courts. The changes make up part of a broader reform programme involving all courts and tribunals in the country.

The courts and tribunals reform programme has received £1bn in funds to carry out its work.

The Family Reform event offers more information on proposed improvements inside family courts and provides an opportunity to offer feedback on the changes made so far.

The event was due to take place on 11th February but was postponed and is now set to take place on Tuesday, 2nd April. If you signed up previously to take part there is no need to re-register. New attendees can sign up here.

The invitation offers further information:

“The event will include an overview of the latest developments in family reform. You will hear about our new digital divorce service which aims to provide an improved, more consistent service for divorcing couples. You will also see an overview of the work in the public law and adoption project.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn more, view and ask questions about the progress and ambitions of the reform programme.

The event will be hosted online, so you won’t need to travel. Presentations, a recording of the event and responses to any unanswered questions will be published on GOV.UK afterwards. If you would like to submit questions beforehand, please email us and include your name.

You can also find the latest information and updates on the HMCTS reform programme web page.”

The event runs from 1pm to 2pm.
