The family courts dealing with public and private child law cases are inundated with work, involving huge amounts of paper. Far more effective is the creation of a file which, from the outset, focuses on material relevant to the judicial decision-making process. So for each particular issue, there needs to be an analysis of what the judicial hearing will actually require, with checklists, questionnaires etc specifying the information necessary to fulfil that ultimate objective.

Child Case Management Practice has been devised to meet that need. For every area of child law there is:

  • A succinct resume of the legal framework
  • A flowchart providing an overview of the relevant process from start to finish
  • Detailed consideration of what the court will actually require to achieve the result applied for (including a timetable to trial and the court’s options/powers)
  • A checklist of all steps to trial (including model documents such as directions etc)
  • A judicial checklist for the trial judge of all material required in order to deliver judgment
  • Model Orders
  • Case Digests (brief summaries of key cases)
Accordingly, the overall advantages of the work are:-
  • Cutting back on file size in a fixed fee environment, thus achieving more from reduced office resources
  • More focused advocacy
  • Less time spent judicially reading files – and also a substantial saving in court time through more focused hearings, or settlements which are achieved because of a clearer focus on issues
  • Maximising access to justice within a restricted budget
