Hague cases, men as victims of abuse and the importance of professional advocacy...

This week on Marilyn Stowe’s Family Law & Divorce Blog I looked at two recent Hague Child Abduction Convention cases, the issue of men being the victims of domestic violence and a judgment by Mr Justice Baker that demonstrates once more the benefit to the court of professional advocacy, a benefit stripped away with the abolition of legal aid:

Child’s objections insufficient to prevent his return to Ireland - A detailed look at the case FK v ML (Child's Objections).

Bringing Hague proceedings to an early conclusion - The President's judgment in D (Children).

Changing attitudes towards domestic abuse against men - The subject of men being victims of domestic violence is back in the news.

The importance of professional advocacy in family proceedings - As demonstrated in the case Re C, D & E (Children).

Have a good weekend.
