On Thursday 23rd October 2014 Trinity Family and Matrimonial Finance barrister Timothy Spain will be delivering a talk on Costs in Family cases to members of Tees Valley Resolution.

Timothy will examine:-

  • Family Procedure Rules 2010 -which Rules apply and when; practice and procedure
  • Public Funding – does it apply?
  • Legal Services Order Applications – the perils and pitfalls

  • Case law update, including Mitchell and the likely effect on family cases
  • Changes since the introduction of the Family Court on 22 April 2014.
