New by me on the Marilyn Stowe Blog

My posts this week on Marilyn Stowe’s Family Law & Divorce Blog were largely about heroes and villains. Specifically, the heroes are those unsung people who work day, and sometimes night, to keep our family justice system going. The villains, on the other hand, are those who deny justice to millions by taking away legal aid, and those who seek to take advantage of the misery that that has caused.

Suspending a Hague Convention return order - The case BK v NK (Suspension of Return Order).

An example of the problems caused by lack of legal aid - The case Roocroft v Ball.

The minefield of unregulated legal assistance - As demonstrated by the recent case in which a paid McKenzie friend was jailed for perverting the course of justice in a family court.

To the unsung heroes and heroines of the family justice system - Praise where praise is due.

Have a good weekend.
