Brief family law blawg roundup

Lynne Bastow of DivorceSolicitor has received abuse and even threats in response to this post, apparently from members of fathers' rights group Fathers 4 Justice. If so, and if F4J wants to be respected (and therefore listened to), then it needs to eradicate this sort of behaviour from its membership.

Jacqui Gilliatt of bloody relations has written an informative article for Family Law Week, on the law relating to relocating children to other countries, and within the UK.

Lastly, The Landlord Law Blog is not the place you'd expect to find advice about marriage, but Tessa Shepperson recommends the institution, and advises how to keep the costs of 'getting hooked' to a minimum (I did much the same when I got married). Just one thing Tessa: it's 'Register Office', not 'Registry Office'. Grr.


  1. So it appears that Matt O'Connor makes a habit of hassling women.
