Dominic Raab – 2022 Comments on Family Mediation

The comments made by Dominic Raab, the Deputy Prime Minister, on 17 January 2022.

I want to see children and their parents spared the stress and conflict of the courtroom as much as possible, and I’m delighted that thousands more will now have the opportunity to resolve their disputes in less combative way.

At the same time, it will free up vital capacity in the family courts to ensure the system can recover quickly from the pandemic.
