His Honour Stephen Wildblood QC, the most senior family judge for Bristol and its surrounding counties is tackling the legal aid cuts head on by holding a family law DIY legal masterclass. Members of the public (and the press) were able to attend for a Q&A session chaired by the judge and two senior family law practitioners. Questions included: “What is the lawful basis for one parent to prevent a child from contact, without an order?” and “If assessments presented to the court contain misrepresentations, what recourse does the injured party have?” This is an innovative and refreshing approach which should provide some valuable legal assistance to those in need in the local area. It would be excellent to see our London family judges attempt something similar one day.
