Hints, hails and trails … but little delivery on family law policy change

Measures to improve families’ access to justice have been hinted, hailed and trailed – but rarely delivered, says the CEO of National Family Mediation (NFM) in a new article.

Writing for Family Law at a time of great political uncertainty and change, Jane Robey says that measures to improve families’ access to justice “have been hinted, hailed and trailed – but rarely delivered.”

With an imminent general election she laments further delays to a legislation aimed at reforming divorce processes.

“Make no mistake, those of us who have long campaigned for no-fault divorce had better bed in for that campaign to continue for some time yet,” she says.

In the article Jane Robey also reiterates NFM’s views about the most effective way for government policy-makers to improve attendance at Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings.
