Child Welfare Reporters Accounts

Thursday, Aug 04, 2016

Amended rules came into force on 26 October 2015 in the Court of Session and Sheriff Court in relation to the appointment of child welfare reporters.

Due to the changes, we require that solicitors send us specific information when a child welfare report is ordered by the court in family proceedings and the assisted person has been ordered to meet part or all of the costs of the report.

Prior to any consideration of the reporter’s account it will be necessary for the nominated solicitor to produce the following information:
•    The interlocutor making the reporter’s appointment
•    The form F44 annexed to the interlocutor, if one was issued.

This information is required to enable SLAB to assess the work carried out by the reporter having regard to the remit specified by the court. 

Without this information we will not be able to make payment.

You should therefore please ensure that both documents are submitted where payment is being sought.
