Jo Edwards comments on the Divorce (Financial Provision) Bill

The Bill seeks to provide a new approach regarding financial awards on divorce.

Jo warns that restricting spousal maintenance to an arbitrary fixed term could result in serious financial hardship in some cases. “The Bill would unwisely remove from judges the current flexibility that allows them to ensure a fair outcome in all kinds of cases.”

Jo’s comments were published in Familylaw.co.uk.

Our Insights

"Forsters have acted for me for some 25 years now. They have looked after all of my legal affairs over the years, conveyancing, litigation, enfranchisement, corporate, and personal with great care and professionalism. They are a hugely loyal and happy family, one that I am proud to be connected with."
