Something for the Week End – Friday 15th November

You are Here:

It’s Friday! It seems like only yesterday that we were telling you about what we had all been up to the last week. It has now been 4 weeks since our blog went live and we’ve had some great stats on how many people are reading it. If there is any area of family law you would like to know about, do drop us a line, email or tweet and we’ll blog about it!

What have the team been up to this week?

Linda: Brightpod meeting for some social media training (find out how I’m getting on by following me on Twitter@Lindalegal1 and LinkedIn), Court hearing about children, instructions to issue a divorce with an international element, speaking to a client who lives abroad, reassuring client about meeting with an expert, drafting documents, preparing attendance notes and drafting advice letters on a number of matters and ending the week with our quarterly meeting with the accountant.

Robert: Is it Friday! It must be the neighbours have put their dustbins out. Where has the week gone! Submitting my Arbitration written assessment on Monday has been followed with a series of collaborative four-way meetings, new client meetings and traditional round table meetings! Roll on a walk on the Downs with the dogs tomorrow.

Alan: A big focus this week has on been on intervention proceedings: this involves a third party being joined into divorce related financial proceedings in the family Court. The stakes are high: our clients have ‘intervened’ in the divorce proceedings otherwise they could lose their home and life savings in their retirement.

Lisa: I’ve been working alongside Alan on the intervention proceedings having attended the Court hearing on Tuesday. Currently finalising the paperwork in respect of an agreement reached between parties in mediation. Also sorting out some arrangements regarding children over Christmas….talking of which I saw the first Christmas tree of the year in someone’s window…it’s November!

Chris: This week I have been busy advising upon the issue of how an inheritance should be dealt with, attending the Brighton Curry Club and attending the Young Resolution Committee meeting which was finalising plans for a charity event in aid of ‘Kids in the Middle’.

Miriam: This week alongside day-to-day client enquiries I have been getting the objectives organised as Goal Maker for Customer Service for the firm which is a key part of our Business Plan. Out of work I’ve been helping my daughter revise for her exams – 6 down 6 to go!

Until next week!

Lucy
