Josephine is a family law specialist with extensive experience in both public and private law applications relating to children. Her clear and straightforward advice and friendly and approachable manner make her well suited to these sensitive and emotive cases.
Children (Public and Private law)
Josephine is regularly instructed to represent local authorities, parents and children through their Guardians. She has considerable experience in conducting multi-day final hearings, finding of fact hearings, and application hearings in cases involving neglect, physical, sexual and emotional abuse, substance and alcohol misuse and non-accidental injuries.
Josephine has represented parents, grandparents and children in applications for Child Arrangements Orders, Specific Issue Orders and Prohibited Steps Orders. She has extensive experience in cases involving allegations of domestic abuse, alcohol and drug abuse and child abuse as well as cases involving leave to remove from the jurisdiction and non-molestation applications.
Josephine is accredited to undertake Public Access work and can advise and represent clients on a range of private family law matters. These include arguments over who the child should live with, the time that the child should spend with a parent, any prohibited steps orders sought, or any specific issue order sought (such as which school a child should attend).
