star this property question text To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, with reference to the announcement on 23 October 2014 by the Minister of State for Justice and Civil Liberties on more support for separating couples and parents, how much of the new £2 million package will be spent on improving the Government's Sorting Out Separation website. more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to making sure that when people separate they do it in the best possible way. Too many people end up fighting expensive and confrontational court battles when they could be helped to resolve their problems outside the courts. However when people do end up in court it is imperative that they have the right advice and information.</p><p> </p><p>The new package of support which I announced on 23 October is aimed at keeping disputes away from court, while those who end up in court will be provided with better support. The £2m funding identified in the announcement will be used to support the increase of legal and practical support for litigants in person in the civil and family courts. This strategy has been agreed with the legal and advice sectors and we are working with them on implementation.</p><p>The funding will not be used to support improvements to the DWP's Sorting out Separation website. This is because we are already working closely with DWP to improve and refine Sorting out Seperation. The DWP has appointed commercial providers with digital expertise to run the new contract for strategic development and improvement of the online service and to raise its profile for online search. MoJ and DWP are working closely with providers as their recommendations are implemented.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The ‘supporting separated parents in dispute helpline’ pilot is complementary to the online Sorting out Separation information and advice service. However, the pilot is different because it will test the provision of tailored information and signposting based on a telephone discussion with an experienced Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass) professional. The Cafcass professional will signpost separating parents in dispute to sources of information, advice and support appropriate to their circumstances, which could include Sorting out Separation or the Child Maintenance Options online and telephone service, as appropriate.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally, we are working closely with DWP to improve and refine Sorting out Separation. The DWP has appointed commercial providers with digital expertise to run the new contract for strategic development and improvement of the online service and to raise its profile for online search. MoJ and DWP are working closely with providers as their recommendations are implemented.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>The Department is not able to provide this information as it would incur disproportionate cost. The Justice Secretary has been on a significant number of domestic visits in the 18 months since January 2013. This would require extensive diary searches and work to compile the information. The Justice Secretary and members of the Ministerial team regularly visit courts, prisons and probation trusts and other organisations relevant to the Ministry of Justice’s business. The purpose of these visits is to meet frontline staff and stakeholders, discuss their work, and to inform the development of policy.</p> more like this
