This morning, I was reading the case HU v SU  EWFC 535 published earlier this month. The case has a number of features which are depressingly common:
- Allegations being omitted from earlier statements and the schedule of findings sought, and later fresh allegations embellished and exaggerated in oral evidence;
- Children being involved in parental disputes and influenced by one or other of the parents impacting upon their relationship with the other parent;
- Late filing of evidence.
