Not the Family Lore Clinic...
Well, I sat down with the intention of writing a Family Lore Clinic post, as seems to have become my habit most Wednesdays. As usual, I went to my blog stats and looked at the recent keyword activity that brought people here, in order to find a question to answer 'in the clinic'.
Yes, there were some sensible questions, but they were completely outweighed by questions and search terms which were, well... judge for yourself...
I'll begin with a couple of the sensible questions (in their original state), which can be disposed of quite quickly:
why a court would rule in favour of the father for residency
Because the court thinks that that is in the best interests of the child.
how long doesnit take for a consent order to be seald by the court
It depends upon the court, and how busy it is. When I was practising it could vary between a few days and a few months(!).
OK, moving on, we had a couple of questions possibly from the same, somewhat confused, person:
what are the benefits of being a family lawyer
why do i want to be a family lawyer
You're asking me?
Then things start to get a little weird:
family enforcement orders hopelessly complex and procedurally tortuous
Well, yes, I suppose you could say that.
have i got a consent order
How do I know?
what is dispensed with
no wholly improper judicial observations escaped my lips
I should hope not!
divorce pictures were people are happy
Isn't everybody happy to get a divorce?
And finally we had the completely surreal:
cheap orange jumpsuits
Sorry, I have no idea where you might find one of them...
...and I definitely wouldn't know where you might find one of them!
