Money, poverty and acrimony


I suppose it would be a bit cynical to say, but those words sort of sum up family law work, as evidenced by my posts this week on Marilyn Stowe’s Family Law & Divorce Blog, which included:

The tragic myth of the ‘gold digger’ - How a stereotype may have left many wives in poverty.

Should family firms refuse legal aid work if it is uneconomical? - Now that the Law Society have given the go ahead for criminal practitioners to do just that.

The return of acrimony to divorce proceedings - The inevitable consequence of Owens v Owens.

The perils of the litigious litigant - As demonstrated by the Irish High Court case R.K.A. -v- P.T.P..

Have a good weekend.
