E-disclosure and its use in family proceedings: after Imerman

Her Honour Nasreen Pearce,

Retired Circuit Judge

David Burrows,

Solicitor Advocate:    

This third article in the series on electronic disclosure contrasts the need for proportionality in seeking and providing disclosure, against the need to be prompt in securing the freezing of information and assets in appropriate cases. Using Imerman as its starting point in terms of confidentiality the article looks at the specific statutory sources for seeking court orders for discovery of documents and disclosure of information, both before and after issue of proceedings. It relates these remedies back to the specific means by which they are applied for and the courts in which application is to be made.    

The full version of this article appears in the May 2013 issue of Family Law.
