Clerk Details

Family

Angel is a busy new member of 3PB’s Family Law Group, having completed pupillage with the national chambers, and has a keen interest in financial remedies and public law disputes concerning children.

Angel has experience with family law injunctions from return dates to final hearings and private law disputes concerning children from first hearing dispute resolution appointments to final hearings. During pupillage, Angel drafted threshold documents, schedules of allegations, grounds of appeal, skeleton arguments on family matters, such as ToLATA, and advice on various issues, including parental alienation.

Angel’s recent successes include:

  • Successfully obtaining no order for contact (save through letterbox) at a Dispute Resolution Appointment in a case where the father suffered from high cannabis dependency and poor mental health.
  • Persuading the tribunal that a fact-finding hearing was necessary and proportionate, against CAFCASS’s recommendation, due to allegations of serious domestic abuse that had caused the applicant to flee the former matrimonial home.
  • Successfully obtaining live with orders and spend time with orders in line with what was sought by the applicant.
  • Obtaining prohibited steps orders to prevent respondents from removing the children from the care of the applicant or an institution entrusted with the care of the children.
  • Successfully resisting an application for more contact than the parties had agreed in mediation.
  • Negotiating non-molestation orders by consent for applicants, despite previous reluctance to consent from respondents.
  • Successfully acquiring an order to specify that the applicant would remain with the child’s passport, and the respondent had to inform the applicant before applying for a foreign passport.
  • Recommendations
