Family Assistance Order

The aim of the Family Assistance Order, which can be made by the Court in any family proceedings, is to provide short-term help to families coping with the effects of the proceedings. Such Orders are most likely to be made in contested private law cases involving children. The Order requires a social worker to advise, assist and befriend the family for a period up to 6 months.
