Family Law Briefing – March 2024

Briefings, News | Tue 19th Mar, 2024

Welcome to the latest edition of the Briefing from the Family Team at Deka Chambers with articles by Madeleine Miller and William Dean.

Madeleine Miller considers the Court of Appeal’s decision in Re K (Children) (Powers of the Family Court) [2024] EWCA Civ 2, in which the President provides very helpful guidance about the jurisdiction of the Family Court as against the inherent jurisdiction of the High Court.

William Dean provides a helpful summary of 5 recent authorities touching on: the appointment of intermediaries; what the court should do in the absence of a Qualified Legal Representative being appointed; a review of the test for permission for expert evidence; the use of the High Court’s Inherent Jurisdiction; and time limits for notice in adoption applications.

Deka Chambers is one of the largest common law sets in the country. We have a strong and experienced team of barristers who provide advocacy and advice in all areas of family law.

We are delighted that Ed Lamb has been appointed King’s Counsel and formally took silk on 18 March 2024 at a ceremony presided over by the Lord Chancellor.
