As a condition of our ethical clearances, the research team were required to maintain a period of time from the end of the family law proceedings and interviews with children/young people. For children and young people aged 10-11 years, a minimum of 12 months was required to have passed after the final resolution of family law matters before we could interview the child/young person. For children and young people aged aged 12-17 years, this period was 3 months. Ensuring that a period of time had elapsed after the end of family law proceedings allowed us to reduce the burden on participants and the potential for distress due to involvement in proceedings.
