I am now a Trainee in the Family department dealing with divorce, child contact and finances. The child and finance aspects are in respect of both married and unmarried clients. Day-to-day duties include advising clients, liaising with Cafcass, Solicitors and the Court, sending letters and drafting legal documents.
I also attend client meetings and Court, taking notes and assisting counsel. I have recently been involved in drafting articles in relation to hot topics in family law for the firm website.
I enjoy going to music concerts & festivals, shopping and travelling. In October 2018 I went travelling around Thailand for 2 weeks on my own which was an amazing experience.
As of 13 March 2014, pursuant to the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013, same-sex marriage became legal in the UK. Before this, the only way same-sex couples had legal recognition of their relationship was through a civil partnership.
