Important New Guidance

Intermediaries - in re X and Y

"Following on from the above case I am looking at severely restricting the use of intermediaries in Kent. The guidance contained by Mr Justice Williams makes it plain that only in exceptional circumstances should they be used for the whole trial. Of course it is case specific and I expect everyone to look at each case individually so I can?t be too dogmatic. Please can you send this out to your members."

Message to Kent Law Society members from HHJ Sarah Davies, Designated Family Judge for Kent, Canterbury Combined Court and Medway County Court.
