The introduction of a single Family Court in England and Wales is "a cultural revolution", according to one of Britain's most senior judges.
Sir James Munby, President of the Family Division said:
Taken as a whole, these reforms amount to a revolution. There has been, indeed there had to be, a fundamental change in the cultures of the family courts. This is truly a cultural revolution.
I have visited every care centre to see for myself how it is taking shape.
These visits have brought home to me just how enthusiastically and with such determination and commitment everybody in the family justice system has embraced the process of reform.
