They Give and they Take Away

The moment I typed the bullet point;

Post LASPO legal aid for under 18s party to family proceedings ends on their 18th birthday

I wondered how soon it would be before this resulted in a mid case car crash.

The only surprise is that it has taken so long for this to materialise.

Today a teenage mum in a private law children case has had her LA stopped just ahead of a contested final hearing. Yes, utter madness isn’t it.

Does anyone know of a successful, or otherwise, challenge to this nonsense?

(Yes I am reading the doomed ECF application as we speak)
