Abstract: This article analyses the images of the child which underpinned debates on the Family Law Act 1996 and which justified particular provisions of that Act in relation to the substantive law and procedure of the divorce process. It argues that, notwithstanding other developing images of the child by the end of the 20th century, the image of the victim was still influential in the passage of legislation.
