Representing a vulnerable Father with Autistic Spectrum Disorder

Marie represented a Father who had a diagnosed Autistic Spectrum Disorder and had been assessed as being a ‘vulnerable litigant’. Marie is experienced in dealing sensitively with vulnerable clients, and in this case her client was also entitled to have an Intermediary at Court to assist him in understanding the proceedings and Court hearings.

Marie’s client was making an application for variation of a CAO, under which he spends time with his children. The case is listed for a FHDRA to determine the issues that the Court needs to deal with and any expert reports that may be required.
