Family Law and Divorce

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is to divorce her second husband after eighteen months of marriage citing “unreasonable behaviour” according to a number of media sources.


A new study has revealed that some areas in Scotland have double the number of divorces than the national average.


The Christmas and New Year periods can be extremely stressful for a couple, potentially bringing any relationship problems into sharp focus. This is one of the reasons the first working day in January, dubbed ‘D-Day’ by the media, is traditionally the busiest day for divorce lawyers – one of the UK’s best known family lawyers, Marilyn Stowe, has reported a 50% divorce enquiry surge in the days following Christmas.


Separated parents are being urged by a national family charity to put a parenting plan in place to avoid disputes over child care and other issues this holiday period.


According to a recent study from Scotland’s Adoption Register, there are more than double the number of children on the adoption register than families offering to adopt.
