Brexit: the current implication for European Nationals exercising treaty rights in the UK

Currently nationals of member states within the European Union have the right to work within the UK without being subject to discrimination on the grounds of nationality. Despite what many fear, this right of free movement is enshrined under Article 21 on the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union – it is a treaty we are still part of and is supported by a directive (2004/38/EC) which allows EEA nationals and their family members to move and reside [...]

Are you mentally thriving?

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week, run by the Mental Health Foundation to raise awareness of both positive and negative mental health. This year, the Foundation aims to ask why so few of us are “thriving” with good mental health and what can be done to improve that – just 13 per cent of individuals surveyed by the Foundation reported living with high levels of good mental health. As lawyers, we often see people in crisis. Our clients are stressed, [...]

Last call before latest death tax introduced

From the beginning of next month new probate fees of up to £20,000 will be brought in – many are rightly labelling it another “death tax”. Currently, the Probate Registry charges £215 to friends and family or £155 if applied for through a solicitor – this will increase, on a sliding scale, based upon the value of the estate. The fees will range from £300 up to £20,000.  It will affect all estates worth more than £50,000 which need a Grant [...]

The end of days? Or just Article 50

Much has been written since the country decided it no longer wanted to be part of the European Union (EU). It was by the narrowest of margins, but it was decisive. After a great deal of speculation and politicking from those of all hues, the Prime Minister, Theresa May, will today invoke Article 50 – this is the beginning of the official process for us to leave the union. Here will follow up to two years of negotiations. If we fail [...]

Brexit doesn’t mean exit for EU nationals

If you are a European national it is a certainty that you will have been concerned about your future in the UK after the decision to leave the European Union (EU). Under any circumstances immigration matters and securing your rights in any country is complex. Yet, the issue has become even more difficult to navigate of late due to the sheer weight of political pressure from all sides of the many, multi-faceted arguments. The uncertainty has been significant. There has been [...]

Coercive Control carries a maximum sentence of 5 years, a fine or both.

Coercion in the eyes of the law is where a person is purposefully domineering towards a partner or their children. The new offence acknowledges what abuse victims have been telling us for decades; that having their independence and other basic rights and liberties controlled is a form of domestic abuse. This new legislation is significant as it criminalises many other forms of domestic abuse, which have been historically difficult to evidence. Coercive control could look like: Unreasonable and non-negotiable demands Stalking – surveillance [...]
