myCourtroom – exploring the family court
Cafcass and the Centre for Child Protection at the University of Kent have launched an interactive online court simulation to help prepare separated parents for family proceedings.
myCourtroom is an interactive online court simulation, which shows a typical scene in the family court. It offers separated parents involved in family court proceedings the opportunity to look around a virtual court room ahead of the first hearing. By exploring the court room, parents can gain a better understanding of what happens in family proceedings and the roles of the professionals involved.
Users can explore the court and click on objects or people in the scene to interact with them and find out more about their role. The accompanying guide supports use of the simulation and signposts to other resources which help familiarise parents with the court setting and processes.
