The English family courts may be crippled by delays – but it’s often the opposite with children’s cases, says Withers’ UK family team head Suzanne Todd. ‘They’re pushing them through so quickly now, to try and tick their boxes, that there isn’t time for clients to take a deep breath and think about what is going to work from a practical perspective, and from the child’s point of view,’ she says. Common-sense measures are often overlooked before Todd becomes involved: ‘In our first meeting, we will always say, “Have you closed down all your shared social media accounts? Have you changed all your passwords?”’ The answer is no more often than you might assume, she says.
