Family Lawyers & Family Courts

Being a Family Lawyer is pretty lucrative as apparently 48% of marriages end in divorce for a variety of reasons.  From affairs or domestic abuse, to unreasonable behaviour in the form of alcoholism or using recreational drugs; marriages can last a few months right up to many years. 

It is well documented that the Family Courts are in chaos. As of 1st April 2013, Legal Aid for divorce cases in England and Wales was withdrawn by the government. Legal Aid funding is not allowed for divorce or family law cases unless the party applying is a victim of domestic violence. The rules are very strict and it’s all means tested. In many cases, the applicant has to be on what’s termed a “passporting benefit”, which is a benefit the applicant is receiving purely because they have no assets or other income. 

8 things NOT to do when you are getting a divorce

Legal Aid

With legal aid unobtainable for the majority, this leaves many people acting as LIP’s (Litigant in Person) in the courts and with very little legal knowledge, Judges are left guiding these poor folks through court cases where they don’t have the correct paperwork and documents or through cross-examining their ex. It’s sheer courtroom drama.

McKenzie Friends

For those who have very little income, there are practices which are run by McKenzie Friends. These are people who can accompany someone to their court case, to help them as they are a LIP and unrepresented by a Solicitor or Barrister. The McKenzie Friend can sit in the courtroom with the LIP and offer support and advice as well as taking notes. They can also very quietly provide divorce legal advice. 

There are a few things that a McKenzie Friend is unable to do. They cannot conduct litigation; this has to be done by the LIP and neither can they file court documents or statements. If you want further information on this, there is a Practice Direction issued by the Family Courts.
