Sally Beaumont has specialised in family law since 1999. She undertakes all types of family work, but specialises in complex and protracted care cases involving infant deaths, serious injury, and sexual and/or physical abuse. She is equally well-versed in acting for local authorities; parents and other family members (particularly grandparents); and for children, which ensures a well-balanced and high level of expertise when it comes to advocacy.

She works in all courts and has carried out a number of cases in the High Court in London. She also has experience in the Court of Appeal. Sally is extremely able when it comes to drafting documentation and advising on difficult and complicated issues of law.

Child removal & abduction

She has dealt with a large number of Hague Convention (and non-Hague Convention) removal-from-the-jurisdiction cases and child-abduction cases, both in the context of care cases and in the context of private law cases. She has an extremely good working knowledge of the Brussels Regulations and cross-jurisdiction recognition and enforcement.

Private law

She deals with serious and complicated private law matters, including those involving significant allegations of domestic violence, implacable hostility, contact disputes and marriage nullity.

Culture-related cases

Sally deals with cases involving forced marriages and ‘honour killings’, and is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to cultural issues arising from family cases.

Vulnerable & young persons

She has particular expertise in dealing with clients with extreme learning difficulties, mental-health problems, psychological/personality disorders, and/or child/youth clients. This is greatly assisted by Sally’s background in psychology, counselling and child therapy.

Same-sex relationships

Sally has dealt with a number of cases involving same-sex relationships, and is well-versed in the case law relating to the difficulties faced in the family courts by same-sex couples.
