New Government figures indicate thousands of separated parents are choosing not to seek help from the new Child Maintenance Service because of new charges brought in this summer, single parent charity Gingerbread has warned.


A record breaking 5,000 children have been adopted in the last 12 months in England, which is an increase of 26% over the previous year.


A recent report has called for more to do be done to support children and families when children return home from care. The report, published by Loughborough University and NSPCC, found that an estimated £300 million is spent each year on failed reunifications of families in England.


Couples who were impacted most during the recession are up to eight times as likely to have suffered relationship breakdown compared to those who were least affected, according to a new study released by relationship support charity, Relate.


As many as a third (3,582) of UK children in foster care have been separated from their brothers and sisters during the last financial year, says charity Action for Children.


 Alison Sharland has been granted permission to appeal a divorce agreement approved by the High Court after discovering that her former husband misled the Court.


A person’s romantic past can affect their chances of having a happy and successful marriage, according to a recent study from America.
