Frequently Asked Questions

Will CAFCASS talk to the children?

In many cases, the CAFCASS officer will speak to the children about their wishes and feelings. If a CAFCASS report is ordered, CAFCASS will arrange discussions with the child/ren which can take place in a number of different ways, possibly inviting one parent to attend with the child/ren to see the CAFCASS officer, alternatively, meeting them at school, sometimes over a virtual platform. The parent with whom the child/ren live will be contacted to make the necessary arrangements. CAFCASS work with the children completing assessment forms which are child friendly and provide information without direct questions being asked.
