The Children and Families Act 2014, s11, introduced a rebuttable presumption that the involvement of each of the child’s parents in the life of the child will further the child’s welfare where it is safe and in the children’s best interests.
There is, however, growing awareness about the harm caused to children by being exposed to domestic violence. The court therefore find themselves faced with the responsibility to balance the need for children to spend time with both parents whilst safeguarding them from harm. http://ow.ly/HxUM30gIKBo

In this blog, Family Law in Partnership associate Carla Ditz examines some of the typical legal and practical problems that arise when an engagement comes to an end.
For most couples, the words ‘Will you marry me’ result in both parties walking down the aisle. For others, that big day may never come as one party, or indeed both parties decide to ‘call it off’. A stream of emotions may follow. Shock, anger, guilt, sadness, relief to name but a few. Once tensions have cooled, the parties will need to consider how to deconstruct the planned nuptials.

In this blog Family Law in Partnership director James Pirrie examines the issues which older children can face when their parents divorce.
Children and the legal system
Perhaps 10% of divorcing couples become stuck over arrangements for their minor children, often moving towards mediation or the increasingly over-stretched courts to find their solutions. Specialist family lawyers, like those at my firm Family Law in Partnership, can sign-post other less-conflicted couples towards organisations that will help them to steer their children safely through the divorce or separation.

In this blog Carla Ditz, Associate at Family Law in Partnership Ltd, looks at adultery and the revised divorce petition from the Ministry of Justice which openly invites the petitioner to name the person with whom the respondent has committed adultery. Whilst naming this third party is nothing new per se, family practitioners argue that the new form could result in more petitioners doing so without necessarily realising the consequences of their actions. http://ow.ly/ItM830gIL5Q

In this blog, Family Law in Partnership associate Carla Ditz looks at the recent decision of the Court of Appeal in the case of Hart v Hart [2017] EWCA Civ 1306 which concerned a marriage lasting 23 years and the division of just under £9.4 million worth of assets. Judgment was handed down on 31 August 2017.
In the case of Hart v Hart, the court had to consider the approach to be taken in relation to non-matrimonial property when determining a financial remedy claim by applying the sharing principle. The case has generated interest because, despite the long marriage, the wife was not awarded half of the total assets.
