This article aims to provide a route map for common disclosure issues that arise in family proceedings concerning children. It considers whether (if and when) one party can withhold disclosure of evidence from another party and whether (if and when) third parties can resist orders that their information should be disclosed into proceedings. The article summarises some key authorities from public children law, private children law, and the Court of Protection to offer a practical guide to dealing with disclosure issues.
The full article will be published in the April issue of Family Law.
