Guide to publication of family court rulings

Family Court Fees to Rise

March 28, 2024

The Transparency Project has released new guidance on the publication of family court rulings.

The legal charity works to increase public understanding of the legal system and respond to inaccurate media reports.

The new guidance is aimed at families caught up in court cases, as well as the professionals working with them. It sets out what might happen if their case turns to be one of the limited number of family court rulings likely to be published by the courts. The families are encouraged to express their views and contribute the process of publication and anonymisation where relevant.

Transparency Project Chair Lucy Reed explained:

“We identified that there were no materials for families involved in family court cases to help them understand when, why and how judgments in their case might be published. Our guide aims to fill that gap. It isn’t practical or appropriate for every judgment in every family court case to be published, but we hope that it will both help make sure judgments are reliably anonymised before publication, and help families and professionals to support publication where that can be achieved without jeopardising the family’s privacy or welfare.”

Publication of Family Court Judgements – A guidance note for families is available here.
