In May 2018 the Scottish Government opened a public consultation 'Review of Part 1 of the Children (Scotland) Act 1995 and creation of a family justice modernisation strategy'.

The review is very broad in scope and includes sections on obtaining the views of the child in family court actions, contact (including contact with siblings), parentage, parental responsibilities and rights, domestic abuse, and court procedure.

We submitted a joint response with Stand Up for Siblings on just the questions relating to siblings. 

All consultation responses are published on the Scottish Government Consultation Hub here and along with an Analysis of all the responses
