Cafcass and Implacable Hostility (Parental Alienation) – The Voice of the Child – Family Law Research

Cafcass understands and recognises the potential for implacable hostility by an ex-partner and also the potential for the ‘alienation’ of a child from one parent in high conflict private law cases. Such behaviour may be so severe it becomes emotionally harmful to a child. Cafcass recognises that cases where implacable hostility is a factor are particularly difficult to assess and resolve. The presence of implacable hostility may result in a recommendation by Cafcass for a Section 7 report to be carried out in which the child’s wishes and feelings can be assessed or in more complex and often long running cases a Rule 16.4 appointment can be made where a Children’s Guardian is appointed to represent the child as a party to the case.”
