Your family case and the coronavirus

Your family case and the coronavirus

These are uncertain times and we are all taking steps to meet the challenges of the coronavirus, including social distancing. 

I am continuing to offer McKenzie Friend services, and have made some adjustments, in response to the latest health guidance from the government.

If you are currently dealing with a family matter and would like my help, I can offer assistance as follows:

  1. Hearing attendance by telephone**
  2. Meetings via a secure online link
  3. Meetings by telephone
  4. Ongoing telephone and email support

**Courts are now offering telephone-based hearings, and I can assist you during such hearings. You should contact the court beforehand to check whether they will accommodate this.

In my experience, judges are willing to continue to allow McKenzie Friends to attend hearings (remotely), particularly if the McKenzie Friend has attended hearings at that court before (with the same litigant-in-person – a person without legal representation).

I will continue to meet with new and current clients, but all meetings will be held remotely rather than in person – via a secure online link or by telephone, whichever works best for you.

I will continue to provide telephone and email support while working with you, as usual.

Please check this page regularly as I will continue to provide updates as new, official information emerges.

Stay safe.
