PRACTICE DIRECTION 36F – PILOT SCHEME: PROCEDURE FOR USING STRUCTURED INTERVENTIONS BEFORE A FIRST HEARING DISPUTE RESOLUTION APPOINTMENT IN CERTAIN PRIVATE LAW PROCEEDINGS RELATING TO CHILDREN

New Practice Direction 36F implements a pilot scheme in certain private law proceedings relating to children. The purpose of the pilot scheme is to assess the use of structured out of court interventions in resolving child arrangement disputes. The aim of the Pilot Scheme is to help families resolve disputes involving children without the need to attend Court, thus easing the burden of the Family Courts and benefiting the children and families involved.

The Pilot Scheme involves the following key stages:

  • An assessment and screening stage, within which applications may be deemed as unsuitable to remain within the Pilot Scheme; and
  • The intervention stage, within which parties participate in a tailored package of dispute resolution services before the First Hearing Dispute Resolution Appointment.
