Whilst litigants may find some of the information on this blog useful it is of course not the same as advice tailored to your individual circumstances – and you should not treat anything on this blog as legal advice. People often post comments on the blog asking for advice about their own family case, which I am unable to give via this website, because barristers have historically only been able to offer advice when instructed by a solicitor.
If you are looking for a barrister or would like to instruct me please take a look at my website lucyreed.co.uk which gives you more information about instructing barristers and how you can go about it.
If you are a Litigant in Person (someone dealing with a court case without a lawyer), or if you are considering going to the Family Court you might find my book “Family Courts without a Lawyer – A Handbook for Litigants in Person” (Bath Publishing 2011) helpful.
The book explains how the courts work, and sets out the law and practical guidance in relation to cases about children, divorces and what happens about money and property when couples separate.
You can buy a copy of the book here.
You can buy the kindle version on Amazon (if you download the kindle app you will be able to read it on your computer, iphone or ipad even if you don’t have a kindle). You can click through on the link below to get straight to the kindle version.
