Latest statistics released by the Ministry of Justice show that the average time for a care or supervision case to reach first disposal, i.e for the court to decide how to deal with a case, was 28 weeks in July to September 2017

There were 65,247 new cases started in family courts in July to September 2017, up 2% cent on the corresponding period in 2016. This was mainly due to increases in domestic violence remedy order applications and private law cases.

The removal of legal aid for many private law cases in April 2013 has resulted in a change in the pattern of legal representation. In July to September 2017, the proportion of disposals where neither the applicant nor respondent had legal representation was 35%, an increase of 18% since April to June 2013.
