The Family Court Process in Times of COVID-19: A Podcast
In this episode of the FLiP podcast we discuss how the courts have adapted to the Covid-19 crisis with a particular focus on how hearings can take place remotely and what other routes are available to clients who wish to avoid the court process altogether.
FLiP Associate Kara Swift leads the discussion with family law barrister Francesca Dowse of 4 Paper Buildings. Kara and Francesca explain what to expect if you are due to attend a virtual court hearing and how to prepare for the hearing. Together they look at the advantages and disadvantages of virtual court hearings and offer tips for making the hearing as stress free as possible.
Kara Swift of Family Law in Partnership advises on all aspects of private family law, supporting a wide range of clients following separation to resolve matters relating to children and financial matters with diligence and care. Kara was named Family Law Young Solicitor of the Year 2019 in the prestigious LexisNexis Family Law Awards. The award recognises a solicitor with under 5 years post qualification experience who has made an outstanding contribution in family law.
