Family solicitors invited to share their views about remote hearings

Family solicitors have been invited to share their views by completing a survey on the use of remote hearings in the Financial Remedies Court (FRC).

The survey looks at how financial remedy proceedings should be conducted in the future.

Share your views on remote hearings in the FRC

Responses will be considered by a working group chaired by His Honour Judge (HHJ) Farquhar to assess how remote hearings can be used in the future.

The working group has been set up to consider all the future working practices of the FRC in a post-pandemic world. HHJ Farquhar has noted that the group's work is “not just limited to remote hearings.”

The group includes:

  • judges of all levels
  • barristers
  • solicitors

While responses to the survey were preferred before Easter 2021, they will be “fully considered” if they are received shortly after.
