An overview of the Child Arrangements Programme (CAP)
Designed to resolve disputes arising between separated parents and/or families, the Child Arrangements Programme (CAP) encourages parties to reach safe and child-focused agreements for their child. Where possible the CAP will resolve matters outside of the court setting as this is often cheaper, quicker and more amicable than court resolutions.
Lecturer Safda Mahmood will provide viewers with an overview of how the CAP operates in practice, with reference to the mechanisms it has in place to ensure the effective resolution of disputes.
During this 20-minute session, consideration will be given to:
• Practice Direction 12(B): (CAP 2014) issued on 22nd April 2014 and key issues
• The voice of the child
• Allocation and gatekeeping
• Making the application, with reference to section 7 and 37 of the Children Act 1989
