Getting things in Focus

After a very busy weekend, mercifully little news today on Family Lore Focus. However, there is a story from Australia which contains a warning for all our divorcing clients: for goodness' sake, sort out the house contents yourselves. After a 26-year marriage the wife walked away with almost A$4.5 million, but still argued about a few of the contents of the former matrimonial home including, remarkably, the rubber hose from the laundry trough(!), thereby holding up the sale of the property. This common-sense vacuum had to be filled by the court, which made an order dealing with the contents, to the expense of both parties.

To catch up with all of the family law news over the weekend and today, visit Family Lore Focus.
