Something for the Week End – Friday 8th November

You are Here:

It’s been a busy week at FLP Towers and with Christmas only being 47 days away we have had several enquiries from new clients wanting our assistance with agreeing Christmas arrangements for children. Lisa has devised some top tips to help ensure that Christmas is a happy time for everyone in her latest blog post, but if you are unable to agree on arrangements then there are various options such as Mediation and Collaborative Law that could assist you.

Here’s what the team have been up to this week: –

Robert: A week dominated by me recovering from a weekend’s Arbitration training and preparing the follow up written assessment. Watch this space for more information on the new Arbitration service we will be offering. Add to that the first fourway on a collaborative law case and a new client wanting to use the collaborative process for a Pre Nuptial. I officially became a World Record Holder…I was part of Barnardos Ocarina ensemble at the Albert Hall.

Linda: Finalising a Consent Order following a successful collaborative process, reviewing a Court Order about a child, successful 4 way collaborative meeting, arranging three new mediations, making progress in two ongoing Court cases; advising a number of clients on the phone and managing to get to parents evening late as a result of the grid lock on the A27 on Thursday night.

Lisa: I supported a devoted dad at a Court hearing in relation to his children; prepared for two Court hearings next week; met with several new clients and discussed their options and in particular which route to take and attended a very interesting talk on Family Arbitration. Today I am at the West Sussex Resolution AGM & Seminar in Horsham.

Chris: This week I have attended Lewes Bonfire which was great fun. In terms of work, I have been involved in a particularly detailed client statement regarding children issues and have also met with a new client to work through solutions to resolve finances.

Alan: Assisting a client whose ex wants to re-locate abroad. But the ex wants the child of the relationship to move abroad too. Such difficult cases to resolve. And growing the mo’!

Mark: We are now 7 days into Movember which has kept us entertained in the office. Alan & myself have already made a tremendous start and Sam is not too far behind! If you would like to sponsor Team ‘Furry Lipped Partners’ you can find our page here. It’s all for a great cause.

I have mostly spent this week tweeting on behalf of @FamilyLawFLP – online networking is definitely fast-paced and I almost feel like I have met the people behind the tweets face-to-face. I spend an hour on Thursday evenings between 8:30 pm -9:30 pm tweeting during @SussexHourUK which is “a lively & proactive way to meet other business folk in your area”. Hope some of you will join in next week!

Lucy
