Private law

Private law proceedings are court cases between family members that do not involve a government agency such as children’s services.

When parents cannot agree on arrangements for the care of their children, the case is dealt with as a matter of private law.

When children’s services are involved in a family’s life, as in care proceedings, then the case is heard as a matter of public law.

The family court hears both public law and private law cases.
