Family law consultation extended until September

The deadline for responses to the Scottish Government’s consultation on the Children (Scotland) Act 1995 has been extended until midnight on 28 September 2018.  This change has been made because many of the responding organisations were finding it difficult to meet the early August deadline because of the school holidays.  It had already been announced that some consultation with children and young people was going to take place later in August after the schools have resumed.

Families Need fathers Scotland is working on our response and we have already held well-attended meetings in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee, Stirling and Paisley to discuss the issues.  Our response will be presented on our web site and we have already published a note of our main points.

Now that there is some more time, we repeat our appeal for parents to respond to the consultation so that your own experience can be heard.  When making a submission about your own case, be careful to avoid using names or other identifiable details.  You don't need to answer all 54 questions, just select the ones that are relevant to you.  Get writing.
