Ending Family Law Secrecy in the UK

Recent ruling in the UK courts is lifting some of the secrecy and privacy rules surrounding Family Law cases. This reported by the Times of London on July 22, 2013.
Based on the article in The Times of London there are around 95,000 Family Law hearings in courts every year which are held in private courtrooms. These cases involve decisions such as custody battles, care orders, and determining where children will live. The new standards essentially says the information will be made public by default, unless there are reasons provided which show the matter should stay private.
From the article: “The cloak of secrecy is to be lifted from family courts in a landmark decision giving greater rights to tens of thousands of parents and their children every year.”
