Taking account of children's needs in divorce - a study of family solicitors' responses to new policy and practice initiatives [2002] CFLQ 57
Date:28 SEP 2011

This article considers family solicitors' responses to recent initiatives intended to improve legal practice in handling family breakdown. It discusses solicitors' practice and views in relation to how children's needs are best taken into account as required by the two Protocols governing this area of work, and reports on their views on FAINs. It suggests that these developments are challenging solicitors' images of themselves as family lawyers, as distinct from family dispute managers.
