An interesting article discussing the local practice guidance from the Central Family Court,  which reverses the expectation that a court appointed Children's Guardian will attend for court hearings unless excused. It examines whether such guidance should have been issued, how this impacts on the Guardian's role and the overall productiveness at any court hearing. 

Interestingly it identifies that this was created without discussion with solicitors and Children's Guardians - arguably those who it will impact upon most.
