Susan, a solicitor with over 30 years’ experience in family law was a founder member of the Family Law Association Scotland, in 1989 and has been a member of Resolution throughout her 24 years as a lawyer in England and Wales. Susan will now take up the position of Chair of the Cheshire and North Wales Resolution group, leading on the group’s activities and campaigns.

No-fault divorce campaign
Resolution has been campaigning for decades for the government to end the blame game and implement no fault divorce.

Resolution members believe that the laws surrounding divorce should be changed, to allow couples to separate without having to apportion blame on a legal document, and without having to wait at least two years before they can divorce. Recently the Government had announced plans to reform these outdated divorce laws, however, due to the impending general election and the suspension of Parliament, this has been put on hold.

In her new role, Susan is committed to continue campaigning and lobbying Parliament for this change to the law, she stated: “I am thrilled to be taking on the role of Chair for Cheshire and North Wales Resolution, I was disappointed that Parliament was unable to pass the new no fault divorce laws before its prorogation, but it is something that I will continue to support through regular lobbying of our local MP and Government Ministers.”
