Recording a CAFCASS interview?

We all need some protection, especially from these heavily biased reports.

Has anyone recorded their interview before or even used it as evidence to overturn a report?

Hi,

I have sat through 2 Section 7 interviews with Cafcass. recording never crossed my mind. I wouldn't recommend it. in the interviews they never would tell me what kind of contact arrangements they are going to recommend. they gave generic responses like "I don't see any problems with this", or "that sounds reasonable". Also if you did record it and want to rely on it later, it's possible the courts may not be interested and refuse to accept it.

This is Cafcass stance on recordings:

I’ve seen a lot of people wish they had recorded it because the report won’t always reflect the conversation.

I’ve also heard stories of them going back on their word and making it extremely biased towards the Mother with ridiculous recommendations.
