Custody of Child in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Brixey v Lynas (No.1)
    • House of Lords
    • 04 Jul 1996

  • L v L (Custody of Child)
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 05 Feb 1980

  • Is (by the Official Solicitor as Litigation Friend) v The Director of Legal Aid Casework (1ST Defendant) The Lord Chancellor (2ND Defendant)

    • 15 Jul 2015

    Section E asks for the extent of the services to be provided. This requires the level of services to be specified under the three headings: licensed work, special case work services and controlled work services. These are defined in the Procedure Regulations as I have already indicated. Reasons must be given why the services requested are the minimum required to meet the obligations under ECHR or EU law.
