Thankfully, most financial cases do not reach a final hearing, but when they do careful organisation can make it easier to deal with the pressures of preparing the case and helping a client faced with giving witness evidence for probably the first time.

Jemma Pollock outlines the key aspects of preparing for final hearings in family financial proceedings, as well as common pitfalls.

Preparing for final hearings in family financial proceedings was first published in the April 2018 issue of Family Law Journal.
