Law Commission Review of Divorce Settlements
Divorce laws in England and Wales have not seen reform in almost 40 years – but now the Law Commission is asking the public to help update them. Consultation began this week on how non-matrimonial property and assets should be shared and the need for financial support. The role of prenuptial agreements is also being assessed. Professor Elizabeth Cooke, one of the Law Commissioners heading the Consultation joins Jenni, along with Family Lawyer Julia Thackray of Penningtons Solicitors LLP, to discuss what divorce might look like in the future – and how the changes might affect women.
