Sarah Kilvington appears in two day contested trial, conducted entirely remotely by Skype for Business

Sarah Kilvington successfully argued that a prohibited steps order be lifted allowing the mother to travel abroad (theoretical in the present Covid-19 pandemic) and that a clearly defined child arrangements order be made following a 2 day contested hearing.

All involved appeared remotely by Skype for Business before a Circuit Judge.

Sarah commented: "after initial technical challenges for some of those involved, the hearing proceeded efficiently and effectively". 

Sarah has prepared an article entitled "how to make your remote advocacy less remote", see here.

Emma Dewhurst of Hall Brown, who instructed Sarah, was interviewed about the case in The Gazette - read here.
