Immigration and nationality issues in children cases: where to start

9 August 2023

Natalie Wilkins

Natalie Wilkins is a barrister with a multi-disciplinary practice which allows her to offer crossover advice in her practice areas, in particular family and immigration law.

Natalie has recently written an article – Immigration and nationality issues in children cases: where to start – for Family Law Journal, to give family barristers guidance when considering immigration and international issues in family law proceedings.

In her synopsis, Natalie says: “This article provides practical pointers on what needs to be considered and pitfalls to avoid, so family lawyers can be more confident they know what information to gather and when, what options to check might be available to secure a carer’s leave or child’s citizenship, and when to challenge concerns raised by other parties that might be misplaced and delay or derail proceedings. Topics covered include the possibility of interim leaving pending proceedings and what can be done for parties who are victims of modern slavery and/or domestic violence.”
