Introduction

This is a highly specialist area of law. In cases where serious findings are sought the medical and expert evidence can be vital to resolving the issues.

By attending this course you will learn how to conduct a fact finding hearing in a non-accidental injury case, deal with tricky sexual abuse cases and also deal with domestic abuse or domestic violence cases. This course is aimed at family lawyers who practise in care proceedings or who undertake fact finding hearings within private law proceedings where allegations of abuse of the parent or child are relevant.

What You Will Learn

This course will cover the following:

  • The law specifically in relation to fact findings. Why conduct fact finding in the first place? Clarification of the standard of proof? Can you still use the term non-accidental injury?
  • The instruction of experts for fact finding hearings
  • How to prepare and conduct a fact finding hearing where the allegations are physical abuse of the child - bruising, shaking, fractures or sadly even death
  • How to prepare and conduct a fact finding hearing where the allegations are sexual abuse
  • How to prepare and conduct a fact finding hearing where the allegations are domestic abuse or domestic violence
  • Even if facts are found, does that make the court’s final decision inevitable?
