Leave to Remove – a (now) family lawyer’s view

The author of this article was formerly a commercial partner in a City of London firm. Having successfully defended his own leave to remove (relocation) case in 2007, he wrote about his experiences and his concerns for this area of law in Family Law Week [familylawweek http://www.familylawweek.co.uk/site.aspx?i=ed1212]. He now practises family law, specialising in leave to remove cases, drawing heavily upon the support of a psychological expert in order to replicate the commercial law multidisciplinary model for the provision of legal advice in which commercial clients demand that their legal team has an understanding of the subject matter of their practice area. In family law, this is the psychology of the individuals and of the case concerned.

Alcoholism

Alcoholism

Excessive consumption of alcohol can be a real cause for concern and as family lawyers in Guildford Surrey we are experiencing many cases where it has become such a concern that it can lead to divorce. If alcoholism is an aspect of the divorce it can play a part in how the proceedings are dealt with. This is an area that will need full investigation, especially if your case involves young children as the courts will take a very dim view of a false accusation, where one party will claim the other is an alcoholic purely for point scoring or mis-guided revenge.

Mental health

Mental health

A person’s mental capacity can be an interesting area for Family Lawyers Guildford within the context of family law. You will sometimes need to ascertain where there is a line between someone sane who is making silly decisions and has full legal capacity and those made by someone with diminished mental capability and therefore no legal capacity to make them.
