Vote to OK new family law court.

Byline: GARRETH MACNAMEE

A REFERENDUM to create a dedicated family law court is to be held next year.

Justice Minister Alan Shatter has confirmed a vote will take place on the new court which will have specialist judges on hand to deal with sensitive cases.

The integrated system will streamline family law courts and will be presided over by a dedicated judiciary who are "specialised and expert" in family law.

Mr Shatter, speaking yesterday at a consultative seminar on a new structure for family courts, said the facility would be in an entirely separate location.

The new court will also have adequate consultation rooms and a welfare and assessment service to support both private and public law proceedings.

The required laws to create a referendum on the establishment of a Court of Civil Appeal will be published next week.
