The Gardner Leader Family Team are pleased to be part of a pilot scheme with the courts for the online submission of financial orders (as part of the divorce). Gardner Leader were accepted alongside a number of other national law firms.
At this stage, the process is a pilot scheme only and the firm was asked to take part in this when Simon Fisher, Senior Associate and Stephanie Buckeridge, Associate, expressed an interest. The scheme is proving successful, with some Gardner Leader clients obtaining a result in less than a week and recently, Suzy Hamshaw, Senior Associate had a financial order approved three hours after submission. From looking at the statistics, clients were previously waiting for up to 2 months for an order to be considered by the Judge.
