Children and young people in separated families: Family law system experiences and needs
When some parents separate, they turn to the family law system (courts, lawyers, counsellors and so on) to sort out their post-separation arrangements. The system can be as hard on young people as it is on parents. So we spoke to a variety of young people aged 10–17 years whose parents had separated to see what things could help them through the process.

This is a report about the experiences and needs of young people whose parents have separated. We are sharing what we learnt with judges, lawyers, counsellors and other people interested in improving the family law system.
