Divorce Postcode Lottery

Lottery-1
Many areas of life are dictated by the “Post Code Lottery” but few would expect this to apply to the family judicial system....
 
However, having read the accounts of those attending the Law Society Gazette’s Roundtable discussion on family law it would appear the justice system has an approach to divorce, children and relocation that is horizontally and vertically inconsistent.

It is thought that District Judges separated by a county line give different treatment of cases with near identical facts. The High Court is also known to take a different approach in relation to questions of relocation to some county courts.

Will this affect you?

At Pinney Talfourd we know that it can matter which court a case is listed in and as such one of the unfortunate decisions we often need to make is where to issue to give our client the best chance of success.

The Family Law team at Pinney Talfourd Solicitors are happy to advise on how and where to progress your case.
