Family Law and CMS Research & Self Help

For a number of years after my own journey through the family courts began, shocked by how the system and the professionals within it were operating, I wanted to get answers to understand what was really going on, why and what was the wider impact.  I also wanted to put some of my early experiences, observiations and understanding to good use so that others good benefit from it.  Below are examples of articles, studies and video presentations I have put together over the last 5 years, and there is more in the pipeline.  These resources are recognised by many as being a robust reflection of whats going on in the family law industry and within the child maintenance system.  Do take the time to consume these, its highly likely they will help you in some way or other to navigate your own journey or at the very least have a much clearer understanding of what is happening and why.
