42BR's Family Group is pleased to present their Spring/Summer programme of webinars covering various topics in the family law sector.
The first four webinars in our programme are aimed at experienced solicitors and focus on fact finding hearings and public law cases.
The second half of our programme is aimed at more junior solicitors, and will provide helpful tips across financial remedies, private and public law family cases.
Please note, you will need to register for each webinar individually using the links below.
Siân’s financial remedies update will consider recent developments in case law and practice. Placing an emphasis on practical tips, Siân will explore key issues and changes, bringing you fully up to date.
Tina Cook KC and Zoe McGrath
In this webinar, Tina and Zoe will explore the courts’ evolving approach to Fact Finding Hearings and when they will be directed. Exploring the significance of cases such as Re G (Child Post-Mortem Report: Delays)  EWFC 55 and H-W (Care Proceedings; further fact finding hearing), they will address when a court will deem Fact Finding Hearings necessary despite the delay they invariably bring.
Damian Woodward-Carlton KC and Sharan Bhachu
Given the central role of the memories of parties and witnesses in fact-finding hearings, there continue to be a range of misunderstandings and fallacies about how memory works and its reliability - the implications for fact-finding in family proceedings are explored in this webinar.
Amanda Jepson and Mark Chaloner
Amanda Jepson and Mark Chaloner will be presenting a public law update, in which they will examine the latest cases and research.
Hannah Cox and Catrin Howells
FDRs are a fundamental pillar of financial remedy proceedings, however, they are strange hearings in many ways and often require a significant amount of preparation to be effective. This talk is aimed at helping you prepare documents for FDR, manage client expectations and what to do post-FDR if parties are unable to reach settlement.
Eléonore Berthelsen and Samuel Davis
Join Samuel and Eléonore for this webinar where they discuss experts in private children law proceedings including:
When do you need an expert?
Persuading the court - how to do a good part 25 application;
What to do when you receive the report – applications and challenges.
Charmaine Clubb and Jennifer Youngs
A webinar intended to assist junior solicitors in identifying when DOLS issues may arise, and when applications should be considered. Tips to assist in making those applications and troubleshooting common problems.
Christi Scarborough and James Sharpe
Threshold documents are frequently criticised by parties and judges in children cases for not being compliant with the guidance in Re A (A Child)  EWFC 11, but it is sometimes far from obvious how to put that guidance in practice in order to draft a helpful threshold document. James Sharpe and Christi Scarborough will take you through the process of identifying and presenting the key issues in a case in order to draft threshold documents in a way that will reduce the risk of judicial criticism and may assist in making cases more efficient to run as proceedings continue.
