In this episode, we kick off by discussing the most talked about area of family law: divorce. With particular emphasis on the changes in legislation to divorce which will be coming into force next year, having been delayed while the UK government works to implement these changes.
We listen to the first-hand experience of John Burrell, Consultant for the Ince London Family Department and his thoughts on this new legislation: the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill. We re-cap on the current ways in which divorce has been processed within and outside of the Family Courts and how this is likely to change. For individuals not working within family law, we touch on the current system of blame and fault; together with the social stigma of divorce in general.
