About the Webinar

This webinar is part of TEN’s “Back to Basics” range of webinars which are specifically produced for junior practitioners. This webinar is priced at only $99 as our way of giving back to the profession and providing a cost effective means for firms to provide CPD for junior practitioners.

Preparing family law matters for trial can be an overwhelming process, unless the file has been managed from the start with evidence for trial in mind. To achieve this, family law solicitors need to understand the rules of evidence and think, like Counsel, from an evidentiary perspective. This session, presented by experienced family law Counsel, shall:

  • Provide a brief overview of the rules of evidence applicable in family law proceedings focusing on issues which family law solicitors tend to get wrong or could do better
  • Discuss the various mechanisms available to prove facts at trial and strategic considerations of each including effective utilisation of notices to admit, strikeout applications, objections, chronologies
  • Practical tips for preparing pleadings and drafting affidavits to prevent objections
  • Suggestions for how to best approach evidence in parenting cases despite relaxed rules of evidence
