What does research say about FDAC compared to normal court?

FDAC gets much better results than when parents go to court in normal care proceedings. A research study at Lancaster and Brunel Universities found:

  • More parents had solved their problems by the end of the case in court.
  • More children are able to live with their parents at the end of FDAC proceedings.
  • The changes parents make are more likely to be long-term.
  • Parents have a better experience in the FDAC court process and felt they have been given the best chance possible to make the changes necessary.
