Family Resolution Hearings

Sir John Gillen, in his Review of Civil and Family Justice set out a number of aims to look fundamentally at current procedures for the administration of justice. 

With that in mind and the Review’s emphasis on outcomes-based approaches and problem solving courts, Resolution Hearings will be convened in the High Court under a pilot scheme which will run from September 2022.  The pilot will operate in line with the notes of guidance and will deal primarily with private family law disputes involving applications under Article 8 of the Children (NI) Order 1995.
