The Supreme Court has announced this morning that in the case of Owens v Owens heard 17 May 2018 the appeal has been dismissed.

This case highlights the need for clarity in a divorce petition and the  clear need for a change in the law.

The current situation of petitioners needing to prove their allegations of unreasonable behaviour against a spouse clearly polarises parties, creates more conflict and tension and is in stark contrast to the approach Resolution family lawyers adopt in practice.  

The full judgement is available on the the Supreme Court website.
