Hey guys

I am in the process of writing the Wiki Code of Conduct for organisations who want to partner with us. I often hear and read about the stuff you are all unhappy with. I would be really grateful if you would take the time out to give me a few sentences about what YOU consider are the problems and what, if you could, YOU would change.

Thanks all

Amanda

OK here goes, if I ruled the world mediation in respect of all issues regarding children would be compulsory (domestic violence/sexual abuse exceptions etc) and parenting agreements would have to be drawn up before decree absolutes were issued. Statement of Arrangements in my opinion totally inadequate for such an important part of the whole divorce process.

its a problem that people dont generally seem to realise how division of assets works at divorce,-especially regarding one party owning the FMH- and how benaviour/ conduct is irrelevant to that dvision.

Thanks Mummybear. So if I wrote a paragraph for our legal partners that said they were to encourage attendance at mediation in respect of children save where the circumstances of the case mitigated against that you would be happy? Or do you have some suggested wording of your own?

In terms of parenting plans, do you mean plans such as the ones which currently exist, or do you mean binding ones?

Thanks Constanza. So if I put in something along the lines that the initial letter should explain section 25 simply to clients, would that be sufficient?
