Jersey Family Court Advisory Service (JFCAS) looks after the interests of children involved in family court proceedings. They work with children and their families, and then advise the courts on what they consider to be in the best interests of individual children. Their involvement may be brief, happening at the begining of the case only, or it may be longer, depending on what is requested of them. Their most important roles are to: keep children safe give information, advice and support to children and their families help the family court to make the best possible decisions about children For a leaflet further explaining the role of the Family Court Advisory Service please click here.

The JFCAS office is based between Cyril Le Marquand House and the Magistrate’s Court on Union Street.
