This has important implications for all future cases regarding differences in the parents’ religious beliefs during divorce or separation proceedings, a situation which quite commonly arises. Most usefully, the Family Law Week blog maintains an archive of important judgements with full details as well as case digest*

The latest issue on the Family Law Week blog, meanwhile, is about haggling with the Legal Services Commission.

There are also connected blogs from Jacqui Gilliatt and Marilyn Stowe, again on all sorts of family law related issues. The blog is actually a wonderful tool for engaging with the latest discussions in the area of family law, which helps to inform every solicitor’s own practice. Because the law is constantly evolving, it is not enough to simply know the law as it is. It is important to understand how social changes affect family law, and to be able to predict which judgements will act as precedents for the future.
