Private law cases that return to court: a Cafcass study

This report sets out findings from a small-scale study on private family law cases that return to court, based upon data held within our administrative dataset. It was undertaken within the context of a 20% rise in private law applications over the past two years and a wish within Cafcass and the wider family justice sector to understand what lies behind the rise and identify cases which may benefit from an innovative approach or being safely resolved out of court.
The aims of the study were to ascertain the scale and patterns of cases returning to court, and the circumstances behind such returns. We made use of quantitative data relating to over 40,000 private law applications received in 2016-17; and of primarily qualitative data relating to case file reviews of a sample of 100 private law return cases received in April 2017.
