Children (Private Law)

Julie is instructed on behalf of parents, children and extended family members.

She has a particular interest in contact between children and their grandparents having two published articles on the topic.

Julie is a calming presence for clients and gives clear advice. Her preparation is meticulous and she works hard to get the result the client wants

Selected Cases

  • A v A [2017]: Successfully represented grandfather on his application for contact in a case of parental alienation.
  • D v D [2018]: Successfully represented mother in an application for contact at the conclusion of which an application was made for costs of £48,000. That application was successfully defended on the basis of the applicant’s litigation conduct, the costs figure being unreasonable, and that it would be impossible to apportion costs between unreasonable and reasonable elements of the case.
  • H v E [2021] Successfully represented mother on an application to remove a child to live in an international location. The case was complex because of the distance involved and important cultural issues. The case was finely balanced and the permission to remove was not in line with the recommendations of Cafcass.
