Parental Responsibility - The Essential Facts Fathers Need to Know

 For some time, the Family Court in the UK has been considered ‘wife-friendly’ when it comes to handling divorces.  So much so that in 2011, legal firms started whispering about the divorce 'race', where high-net-worth couples who wanted to end their marriages vied with each other to begin divorce proceedings in the EU country they felt would give him or her the best settlement.  British men it seems, are more likely than ever before to file for divorce overseas rather than risk having to make a large settlement in English courts.

Can the Court order that I should be tested for drugs or alcohol?

It is quite common these days to come across cases where one party is not allowing the other to spend time with their child(ren) because of allegations of drug and/or alcohol misuse. From speaking to colleagues and local professionals and based upon my own experience, I would estimate that in around 50% of cases the alleged substance mis-user will go to their first appointment with their Solicitor stating their innocence. At that first appointment they are informed that once the Court proceedings are underway, there will be something known as a directions appointment – a hearing where the Judge orders what steps need to be taken to move the case towards a conclusion. One thing that will usually be ordered where an allegation of substance misuse is made is testing for substance concerned.

'My friends, the Patel family, were referred to Harminder Meht of Sultan Lloyd in September 2013.  We met Harminder when circumstances were very challenging and Harminder explained the available options very clearly, helpfully and with evident empathy and understanding.  Thereafter she and her colleagues helped us at every step including securing legal aid despite the fact that a previous solicitor had not identified that this was possible. Harminder was instrumental in securing the release from detention of one member of the family and following a difficult judicial review process she obtained a Home Office decision that allows the family leave to remain in the UK, to work and study here for the next 30 months. We are all delighted with Harminder and Sultan Lloyd and we are very happy to recommend Harminder and Sultan Lloyd to future users of their services.'
