Scotland: A child's experiences of child contact processes: IJCC briefing

Research output: Working paper


‘A’ is a young woman supported by a Women’s Aid group in Scotland; this briefing contains her words about how she experienced child contact court processes.
• ‘A’ did not feel listened to when she was going through the court processes in Scotland. The court decided when and how she would communicate and spend time with a parent that she was not living with.
• ‘A’ felt that she understood a lot more than the adults in the systems around her thought that she did.
• ‘A’ felt that the court systems made assumptions about what was happening because they and the people in them operated with gendered stereotypes.
