A McKenzie Friend can be legally qualified and is able to offer advice and support to you before and during any court hearing.
If your case does need to go to court as a Litigant in Person you will need to be able to present your own case in the Family Court. Your McKenzie Friend is able to sit with you in the court and offer advice and support as well as taking notes to help you further.
Our team of expert advisors support Families and their Children to help resolve family conflict.
McKenzie Friends are experienced and often professionally trained. Many have legal backgrounds and have experience in successfully representing themselves in a Family Court as a Litigant in Person.
Occasionally some Judges will allow your McKenzie Friend to present your case and speak for you (Right of Audience) in court.
Never underestimate the benefit of just talking through your situation with somebody who has experienced this situation and process before.
