A bit about me
Hello, I’m Andrew and welcome to The Financial Remedy Channel!
I am a barrister specialising in all aspects of family finance law: divorce, civil partnership dissolutions, cohabitation disputes, child support and Schedule 1.
I practice from St John’s Chambers in Bristol. In addition to my court and advisory work, I offer two bespoke forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution; the private FDR and a Civil Law-style represented mediation (for both financial remedy, TLATA 1996 and Schedule 1 matters). I am a contributing author to The Red Book (The Family Court Practice) and my remit covers all law and procedure relating to family financial provision and claims under TLATA 1996. I am also the author of ‘Maintenance Matters’, a practitioner’s guide to periodical payments on divorce. Finally, I regularly publish articles in family law journals and provide seminars and lectures to family lawyers in the South West and Wales.
The Channel provides the latest news and procedural updates, judgments and analysis to support and develop any specialist’s practice.
The site is designed to be modern and easy-to-navigate. As far as possible, no stuffy, wordy and dreary content. Instead, enjoy sharp, focused, relevant and interesting material.
Within The Channel, the term ‘financial remedies’ extends beyond the definition in the Family Procedure Rules 2010 and includes law and practice relating to the following:
- Financial provision on divorce and the dissolution of civil partnerships
- Claims of separating unmarried couples (both under TLATA 1996 and Schedule 1 to the Children Act 1989)
- Financial provision after an overseas divorce
- Child maintenance and support
- Inheritance (PFD) Act 1975 applications (a future extension to the Channel)
