Family law solicitors and divorce lawyers from London, the North and around the country will be paying close attention to the Bristol Family and Civil Justice Centre event that took place on 1st October with an educational event bringing together lawyers and solicitors along with the public, press and support services. The event aimed to look at the workings of the family court and surrounding issues within the UK Justice system.
The speakers gave overviews of the main types of work the Family Court undertakes, including private law children cases involving disagreements about where children should live, who they spend time with, holiday arrangements and decisions about last names and school choice. Public law children cases involving the Local Authority were also discussed in terms of how the court decides on the best arrangements for a child and the range of orders available and what the results of these orders mean.
Relationship breakdowns involving divorce, civil partnerships and people who live together were considered, including potential consequences such as domestic abuse and financial issues.
The role of the media in court was explained in terms of how it can be daunting to have journalists in the court but in reality, the extent to which they can share information is limited and can be restricted further if the judge feels it is necessary to protect the anonymity of the parties concerned.
The event, including plenty of marketing and advertising in Bristol and the South-West was important for family lawyers in North London and divorce solicitors in London because the findings will be relevant to them and ,may influence future legal process changes.
