EWHC 3792 (Fam)
The link is to a high court appeal (that is from a district judge).
This was an application for (in this case) a father to pay a capital sum in support of his child under Schedule 1 of the Childrens Act 1989. This is an area of law that is not in any way well known.
As with many areas of family law it leaves far too much to the discretion of the judge. Going back to my previous post about law. Law involves a system of rules which really should be interpretable the same way by any reasonable person with proper knowledge. Much of family law in the UK does not work this way.
However, I think Mrs Justice Baron has done a good job with a very clear judgment.
This is a good example of how article 6 can be satisfied and the family justice system made more transparent without having to identify anyone.
Congratulations to Mrs Justice Baron.
