The first of our two-part POCA Webinar Series took place on Wednesday 19 May 2021 via zoom.
5SAH POCA Webinar Series - Part 1 - Topics & Discussions covered:
- Providing insight into the practical and legal issues that arise when there are contemporaneous POCA and financial proceedings in the family courts.
- An overview of the case-law regarding which set of proceedings should take priority, considering the merits and practical issues of a spouse making a POCA section 10A application in the confiscation proceedings and, on the other side of the equation, the role of the CPS as an intervener in the family proceedings.
- Discussing the most recent case-law surrounding section 10A applications and tainted gifts, and provide practical guidance as to the best way to approach cases of this nature.
