E-working in the family jurisdiction and our plans for reform

Dear All,

E-working in the family jurisdiction and our plans for reform

The attached paper has been produced to provide judiciary and operational colleagues with a much needed update about our plans for the future in relation to e-working in the family jurisdiction.

The paper provides a high level first view of the changes that we expect to design and implement over the coming year so that decisions to roll out local changes in the short term can be made in an informed way.

It almost goes without saying that we are truly grateful to all members of HMCTS staff and judiciary for their hard work and commitment to progress digital working so well at a local level over the last couple of years whilst we have not had the funding to modernise our systems.  We look forward to working with you to develop solutions that will see a return to consistency of practice across England and Wales and this letter marks the beginning of more regular communications with you to keep you updated about progress.

Kind regards,

Kevin Sadler Sir James Munby
Deputy Chief Executive and Courts and Tribunals Development Director – HM Courts & Tribunals Service President of the Family Division
