In and out of Focus

I've done another large daily news update to Family Lore Focus today, including stories about the Child Support Agency, bankers wanting lower divorce settlements and more on the continuing fallout from the Baby P case. Remember, Family Lore Focus does a weekly Newsletter containing a round-up of the most important family law stories of the week. You can sign up to the Newsletter here.

Meanwhile, three blog posts that didn't make today's update:

The Family Law Prof Blog reports that a Bill has been introduced in the state of Washington that would protect animals from domestic violence. The introduction to the Bill states that: "The legislature intends that perpetrators of domestic violence not be allowed to further terrorize and manipulate their victims, or the children of their victims, by using the threat of violence toward pets". The question is, where America leads, will England follow?

Still on the other side of the Atlantic, James J. Gross of the Maryland Divorce Legal Crier suggests a little perspective for clients who think their divorce is the end of the world. I'm not sure it would work with my clients, but an interesting anthropological lesson nevertheless.

Finally, Judith Middleton has an amusing little story from the supermarket aisle. I won't give away the punchline...
