One year since the launch of the Designated Divorce Centre, how are we and our clients faring? Has the court service met expectations? This Family Section seminar will give you an opportunity to look back over the last year to reflect, review and make suggestions. 

Our June 2015 seminar led to the launch of the email information bulletin to save the chasing telephone calls and to allow a quick and easy method for the court to communicate new developments. Do you like the information bulletin? Do you use it? Have you got any hints and tips to share or do you have an idea to make the court/user interface a happy place? 

We will have the lead civil servants for BSE and for the Central Family Court as part of the panel for discussion and questions. The seminar will be followed by a networking session.
