We understand the desire of government and the family court service to reduce costs and improve delivery of expert witness services. At Cansford we are very conscious that delays in getting results of testing can be very frustrating. It can lead to extra costs, as Court cases have to be put back. And worse, it can add to the trauma that children have to suffer because resolution takes so long.
