The Race Equality Foundation is carrying out a review for the Ministry of Justice about how Black, Asian and minority ethnic parents have experienced the private law family court process and in particular, ‘the presumption of parental involvement’.
Decisions in these cases are made with the primary focus of the ‘welfare of the child’ in mind, which presumes that both parents should be involved in a child’s life, unless there is a risk to a child’s welfare. This is called ‘the presumption of parental involvement’.
The foundation wants to hear from Black, Asian and minority ethnic parents in England and Wales who have been through private law cases in the family court about their experience. The team is looking to interview parents from the end of summer.
If you know anyone who might be interested in sharing their experience, please get them to contact Eleni Bloy or via phone on 07708 360561.
