It's that time again. I thought I would go through some of the search terms that have recently found their way to Family Lore. As usual, my disclaimer (in the sidebar) applies to what follows.
uk decree nisi living with partner
Living with a partner does not affect the decree nisi, but could affect the financial/property settlement - see below.
can going bankrupt clear csa arrears
Nice try, but no. Child support is still payable at the end of the bankruptcy.
when is it too late to change solicitors during a divorce
It's never too late, although pretty pointless if the divorce is almost complete. The one thing I would say is: if there is a hearing coming up then give your new solicitors plenty of notice, so that they can properly prepare.
how to calculate spousal maintenance
There is no formula to calculate spousal maintenance. It is usually calculated on the basis of the receiving spouse's needs, and the paying spouse's available income.
lie detector family law court
Never heard of one being used, and can't think of a circumstance when it would.
gifts in cohabitation
They are exactly that - gifts, i.e. the ownership of the item passes to the recipient of the gift.
effect adultery settlement
Adultery per se has no bearing on a financial/property settlement, but if one party is cohabiting then that could have a bearing.
no matter how good she may look now
What, she's kept her looks but you still want to divorce her?
this goes against stack v dowden
can cafcass talk to my daughter without a court order
I am assuming that a CAFCASS report has been ordered, hence their involvement. If so, they can talk to your daughter without requiring a specific order to do so.
if you remarry can an ex wife still make a financial order on me
Yes. Your remarriage would not prevent her from pursuing a claim. A claim is only prevented by the remarriage of the claimant.
blame in marriage
Not sure what the searcher was after here. Unfortunately, we still have a fault-based divorce system in this country, at least unless the parties have been separated for two years.
false perjury domestic violence injunction proceedings
I would say this is pretty common, with applicants for injunctions exaggerating or falsifying allegations in order to get the injunction. Unfortunately, it is usually difficult to prove, as there are rarely any witnesses to the alleged incidents.
promulgated court order family courts
I presume this is referring to the issue of transparency in family courts, and publication of judgments. Mr Justice Ryder recently suggested that judgments should be given in public and anonymised where necessary.
marilyn stowe and madonna
She was recently compared to Celine Dion, but I'm not sure about a Madonna connection - unless she's received instructions from her?
liability order by csa moving assets in relatives name
I've a better suggestion - pay what you owe. You're not the same person that's considering bankruptcy are you?
should i apply for child maintenance he's 17
Presumably, he's still in full-time education. You will need to apply to the Child Support Agency.
one night stand liability for child maintenance
It makes no difference: if you're the father, you're still liable.
marriage is like a game of football
It is? Well, I suppose you're more likely to lose if you play away from home...
