Date:14 AUG 2023
Third slide

Natalie Wilkins, Barrister, Garden Court North Chambers

Immigration and international issues in family law proceedings create additional strain on the limited time and resources family law practitioners have to deal with children cases. This article provides practical pointers on what needs to be considered and pitfalls to avoid, so family lawyers can be more confident they know what information to gather and when, what options to check might be available to secure a carer’s leave or child’s citizenship, and when to challenge concerns raised by other parties that might be misplaced and delay or derail proceedings. Topics covered include the possibility of interim leaving pending proceedings and what can be done for parties who are victims of modern slavery and/or domestic violence.
