Detailed (fully costed) family case plans

All care cases with main hearings over 10 days will qualify for the CCFS model.

Some private law and other child cases, which follow a similar fact-finding route and have main hearings over 10 days, may qualify for the QC/two counsel CCFS scheme.

But all other family HCC including private law, child abduction and Court of Protection cases, are managed using detailed (fully costed) case plans.

These plans set out:

  • description of the case
  • assessment of its prospects
  • legal and factual issues to be investigated and resolved
  • details of costs
  • selection of counsel and experts used
