PRIVATE CHILDREN LAW – RECENT CASE LAW AND DEVELOPMENT

This session deals with a number of topical Children Law subjects, demonstrating some ways in which the Family Court is trying to keep up to date with the changes in our increasingly international and diverse society, to make the court accessible to some people who may not always have been well served in the past and to make orders that have been made enforceable in a well regulated way.

  • Enforcement of section 8 orders
  • Relocation order update
  • Special Guardians – the Silent parties
  • Parental orders – what makes an “enduring family relationship”?
  • Practice Direction 12J – how are we all doing?
  • Practice and Procedure round-up

Graham Pegg, Consultant Solicitor, Pickerings Solicitors

DISCLOSURE – THE COOK, THE THIEF, THE WIFE, AND HER BROTHERS

  • An analysis of the information that we can obtain by social media, or covert recordings
  • What we can then do with that information – How can it be used? When can it be used?  Will it be disclosed to the other side?  Will it be information for cross-examination?
  • An analysis of Imerman to date on where we are in a fast-moving field of discovery, set against the background of professional privilege of when and where it can be waived
  • An analysis of case law to ensure you do not find yourselves on the wrong side of a civil suit

Marc Saunderson, Partner, Mills & Reeve LLP

  • Applications to vary undertakings
