Cafcass publishes new assessment framework for private law cases

The CIAF brings together new and existing guidance and tools into four guides which our private law practitioners can use to assess the impact on the child of different case factors, including:

  • domestic abuse
  • harmful conflict
  • child refusal or resistance to spend time with one of their parents, which includes guidance on parental alienation
  • other forms of harmful parenting, such as substance misuse or mental health difficulties.

One of the guides the CIAF incorporates is our award-winning Domestic Abuse Practice Pathway, which helps our FCAs to assess the impact of domestic abuse on the child and any future risk.
