 Recorded Webinar: Have Costs in Family Law Matters become the Weapon of Choice for the Courts?

Date: Monday 29th May 2023
Duration: Approximately 1 Hour

In rolling out the new rules, the government and the courts have made it very clear that costs in family law matters are a significant issue which will be closely monitored and have consequences for practitioners. This session will examine why costs have become a central issue in family law and what the rule changes mean for practitioners, including:

  • The compliance cost of new rules and process on practice
  • Cost notices, disclosure and the focus on fair and reasonable costs – what does it mean?
  • How will courts use their power to manage costs?
  • The impact of costs crackdowns on practitioners – personal cost orders, indemnity costs and other consequences
  • Recent cases and examples
