Andy Stout, an experienced family law solicitor at Tallents Solicitors in Newark has called upon the government to commit to supporting reforms to the family justice system, including the introduction of no-fault divorce.
The call is part of a countrywide campaign by Resolution, the national family justice body, whose members work to help families to resolve their disputes constructively, keeping the best interests of any children involved at the forefront.
Fairness for Families
After vital legislation on divorce reform and protection for victims of domestic abuse fell by the wayside due to the General Election, Resolution, which represents 6,500 family justice professionals in England and Wales, called on candidates to pledge to support their urgent re-introduction in the new Parliament. They are also calling for legal protection for unmarried couples, and funding for early legal advice, as part of their ‘Fairness for Families’ manifesto.

Book an appointment to make a simple or joint will this month and Tallents Solicitors will waive their usual fees in exchange for a voluntary donation to Will Aid, who will then distribute the donations made to nine UK charities.
