Family Law Assessments

Section 32/47 Assessment 

At Caidreamh we provide an excellent service to children and families engaged in the difficult process of separation. The team receives referrals from the court and solicitors acting on behalf of families.

  • The purpose of S32 is to represent the voice and wishes of the child within the court arena. This team listen to the child’s wishes and then apply psychological theory to this to identify what is in their best interests.

If you are a parent who has been referred to our service you will be invited to meet the team, to complete some information about your family and your experiences prior to this meeting. We will also in most cases meet with your children individually to ascertain their views. You will have an opportunity to ask questions and to communicate your views.

We will produce a report for the court and may be asked from time to time to attend court to communicate about our assessment.
