Podcast Interview #8: Marilyn Stowe, Stowe Family Law

After a series of excuses good reasons for not doing them, I have at last started recording podcasts again.

Today I am speaking to Marilyn Stowe, senior partner in Stowe Family Law and one of Britain’s best known divorce lawyers. Apart from being one of the most sought after divorce lawyers in the country, Marilyn has written two books, regularly writes articles for national newspapers and magazines, appears frequently on television and radio, and is the author of the Marilyn Stowe Blog. Topics covered include reforms to the family justice system, the recent cases of McFarlane and Radmacher and Mr Justice Coleridge's views on family breakdown. The podcast can be found here.


  1. Perhaps a glimmer of agreement with the empowerment comment and solicitors helping out there. Would be a nicer way of doing things, like warning letters after an argument from a solicitor, rather than a divorce petition perhaps as an example.

    I do disagree with everything else she said though. Especially re co-habitation and pre nups. If no such thing as bad conduct, and shouldn't be. Pre-nups are the only way to stop gold-diggers. Also I am not sure on someone who has not been through their own divorce (good for her) being an expert on the matter.

    Was interesting though, thanks.
