In Re Z (a child) [2020] the court was concerned with two applications: one for legal costs funding and one for interim financial provision for a three-week-old child.

Russell-Cooke senior associate Rebecca Stone reminds lawyers in Family Law Journal that they should apply for legal funding as early as possible, consider what credit, if any, they are prepared to extend to a client, and make it clear to clients from the outset that they will cease to act if credit is extended beyond an agreed amount.
