Natasha Phillips, a non practicing barrister and one of our magazine contributors has started 2 petitions regarding necessary changes in family law.

You can read the article, including the links to the petitions here:

www.wikivorce.com/divorce/Wikizine-Famil...tition-Petition.html

Please support these petitions - it would seem that the one thing we can all agree on is that change is needed.

I have had a read through whilst at the hospital tonight. In principle yes it sounds good and would definately free up court time for more important things.

My question though is where you have an ex who is the resident parent and they have refused all forms of mediation. When faced with a judge it then takes two attempts for it to sink in that the judge is not making an offer and their word is final. How would these new procedures work with them? Or would it be a case of attending, going down the route and then still ending up in court months later?
