Post-referendum hangover cure

What better way to recover from a post-referendum hangover than read a bit of family law? OK, I can think of a few. Well, a lot, actually. Still, if you are so inclined, here are some of my efforts this week on Marilyn Stowe’s Family Law & Divorce Blog:

Has mediation turned the corner? - Last week National Family Mediation reported a significant rise in the take-up of its services in the first six months of 2014. Does this mean that mediation is at last going to reach the levels its adherents hope for?

Will 50,000 children benefit from the child maintenance reforms? - Looking behind the recent claim by the Department for Work and Pensions.

Important cases: Martin-Dye v Martin-Dye - A look at the pensions case Martin-Dye v Martin-Dye.

Re M (A Child) and the burden of proof - A look at the recently-reported case Re M (A Child) [2012] EWCA Civ 1580 and the issue of the burden of proof.

Have a (moderately) sober weekend.
