Family Law Links & Resources

I have recently revamped my list of links and resources about UK Family Law by topic onto a blogging platform at Family Law Webworld.

Topics include addiction, experts, mental health, medical, parenting after separation, disorders & litigation, online dictionaries.

The full topic list is set out on the Children in Law links page

I am always on the lookout for sites which practitioners, Mackenzie friends or family members have find useful so let me know if you think there is a good one I am missing. I am already reviewing the list again and will post again when it is updated so now is a good time to suggest additional links.

Fact Finding: Legal Summary by DJ Simmonds & HHJ Hess

I am very grateful to DJ Simmonds at the Central Family Court who has collaborated with HHJ Hess to produce a handy summary of the law on fact finding hearings and they have kindly agreed that I can share it.

I have published it on my Children In Law site articles page - click on the link to Fact Finding under the (completely inaccurate) picture with gavel and it should download as a word file.

I would be pleased to hear from anyone who has any extra cases which they think should be included.

Thanks again to DJ Simmonds & HHJ Hess.
