Caroline’s practice encompasses both family finance and private law children matters. She is therefore able to offer continuity of counsel in both areas of family law. A number of solicitors and clients have instructed her in tandem proceedings and have valued the approach and over arching perspective it brings to cases and case management.
Children (private law)
Caroline’s private children practice covers a wide ambit from external and internal relocation to acrimonious private law children matters involving implacable hostility and parental alienation. Her cases routinely feature expert psychiatric and/or psychological opinion and require a nuanced and sensitive approach. She has further expertise in cases involving substance misuse (both drug and alcohol) and mental health issues.
Family finance & property
Within the arena of family finance Caroline is instructed not only in financial remedy cases but those involving co habitation disputes including Children Act 1989 Schedule 1 matters. Her cases frequently involve a high value asset base, business valuations, expert tax opinion and complex pension cases.
Domestic violence & injunctions
Caroline is frequently briefed in cases of domestic violence and where emotional and psychological harm is present. She undertakes injunctive relief work pursuant to Family Law Act 1996.
