The country may have fallen under the spell of the Beast from the East this week, but that didn't stop me posting on the Stowe Family Law Blog (well, someone has to keep things running), where my posts were generally of a rather serious nature. They included:
“Unpalatable” for a McKenzie friend to cross-examine alleged abuse victim - The judgment of the Court of Appeal in J (DV Facts).
Come on, surely we can do better than the child support system? - Thoughts provoked by the recent case MJ v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and FD, not to mention the even more recent case P v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and P. In both cases, the child support claims were still grinding on, despite the children being well into their twenties!
Domestic abuse sentencing guidelines contain lessons for all - Some thoughts on the new guidelines from the Sentencing Council.
No special rules or indulgences for litigants in person - As confirmed by the Supreme Court in Barton v Wright Hassal LLP.
Have a warm weekend.
