The law changed on 6th April to allow couples to divorce without having to apportion blame: “no fault divorce”. Now that the dust has started to settle, Family Lawyer, Farhana Shahzady can give you the lowdown on what it means, how it works and give her view on the reality of the process today.
The session will run into the usual monthly legal Q&A giving people the opportunity to ask their questions on both no fault divorce and their own divorce situations.
If you want to know something about the legal or financial aspect of your divorce you can put your question to Farhana Shahzady on the night or alternatively you can email your question to [email protected] before the event. As we all know, legal advice is very expensive – up to £500 per hour – so this is a great opportunity for our members to recieve valuable advice as part of your membership fee.
