A couple of things to mention:
A group of the great and the good, including Cherie Booth QC and James Turner QC, have written to The Guardian today to express their "dismay at the arbitrary decision-making process by which it seems the Legal Services Commission has barred leading family law solicitors, in particular those who specialise in protecting victims of forced marriages and "honour"-based violence, from continuing to act for legally aided clients". They "call upon the LSC to demonstrate the public value of experience over bureaucracy by urgently revisiting its decision". I hope that the LSC are listening - I shall be returning to the debacle that is the legal aid contract tendering process in another post later today.
Meanwhile, a court in New York has permitted a mother to relocate to Florida, provided that the father can video chat with the children via Skype, several times a week. I don't know whether such a thing has been included in a contact order over here, but it seems a pretty good (and obvious) idea in cases involving large distances between the parents. For details of the case, see this story in the New York Divorce Report.
