To Have and Have Not
This week my posts on Marilyn Stowe’s Family Law & Divorce Blog are all about our two-tier family justice system: one for the rich, one for the poor:
Second class litigants - The perils faced by those who can't afford proper legal representation, as demonstrated by Re Baggaley.
A small ray of light is extinguished - The Court of Appeal's decision in K & H (Children) that the court had no power to order HMCTS to provide funding for legal representation outside the LASPO scheme.
How the other half litigate - In stark contrast to Re Baggaley, we have G v G, demonstrating how different our family justice system is for those with money.
Have a good weekend.
