Amanda Dench recognised as a Resolution accredited specialist

Miles and Partners are developing considerable expertise in the area of international child abduction. In January this year Amanda Dench was recognised by the UK’s leading family law group – Resolution – as an accredited specialist in this area.

The Resolution Accreditation Scheme is designed to help people who are facing family breakdown to make an informed choice when deciding which lawyer to appoint. To become a Resolution Accredited Specialist, lawyers have to agree to uphold the Resolution Code of Practice and pass a written test demonstrating a breadth of knowledge about family law issues and specialist knowledge in at least two areas of family law.

Amanda developed an interest and expertise in international child abduction after having acted in a number of cases involving different jurisdictions including Nigeria, the Dominican Republic, Cape Verde, Portugal and Luxembourg, including one case which went to the Court of Appeal. Amanda’s expertise was recognised by Resolution in 2009 when she achieved the status of Accredited Specialist in International Child Abduction.

As a result of this achievement Miles and Partners has been accepted onto the referral list of specialist solicitors held by the International Child Abduction and Contact Unit (ICACU).

Miles and Partners is particularly well equipped to assist clients who need advice on international child abduction, having lawyers and caseworkers who are fluent in many languages including Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Arabic, Urdu and Bengali.

We are also members of Reunite and several members of the family department have expertise in the area of making and defending applications to remove children from the jurisdiction.
