PRACTICE GUIDANCE: MCKENZIE FRIENDS
Date:15 APR 2008

This Practice Guidance was withdrawn on 12 July 2010 and replaced with Practice Guidance: McKenzie Friends (Civil and Family Courts) July 2010.

In the light of the growth of litigants in person in all levels of family court, the President issues this guidance, which supersedes that of 13 May 2005 [2005] Fam Law 405, and is to be regarded as a reminder that the attendance of a McKenzie friend will often be of advantage to the court in ensuring the litigant in person receives a fair hearing.
