Family courts unravelled

Family law solicitors share their experiences of the family courts. 

Earlier this year, the Law Society’s Family Law Section asked its members to recount experiences that they have had in the family courts. In doing so, we unravelled the extent of dealings with counsel’s chambers, fees charged by counsel when matters were taken out of the list by the court at the last minute, and chambers’ deemed dates for due fees.

Tony Roe and Mena Ruparel provide some insight into what the responses revealed and contemplate what family law practitioners can do about the current state of the family courts.
