1 Garden Court

Practice Overview

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.
