Susan Alexander calls on prospective candidates to commit to family justice25-Nov-2019

Ahead of the General Election Cullimore Dutton Family Solicitor, Susan Alexander, has called upon prospective parliamentary candidates (PPCs) in Chester to commit to supporting reforms to the family justice system, including the introduction of no-fault divorce.

The call is part of a countrywide campaign by Resolution, the national family justice body, whose members work to help families to resolve their disputes constructively, keeping the best interests of any children at the forefront.

After vital legislation on divorce reform and protection for victims of domestic abuse fell due to the General Election, Resolution, which represents 6,500 family justice professionals in England and Wales, is calling on candidates to pledge to support their urgent re-introduction in the new Parliament. They are also calling for legal protection for unmarried couples, and funding for early legal advice, as part of their ‘Fairness for Families’ manifesto.

As Chair of Cheshire and North Wales Resolution, Cullimore Dutton’s Susan Alexander has been engaging with local candidates to ensure a commitment that Chester’s future MP will champion these long-overdue reforms.

Susan said: “It is vital that Chester’s next MP gets behind these reforms as a matter of urgency in the next Parliament. As a member of Resolution I am committed to helping families resolve disputes as constructively as possible, yet the law as it stands hampers me and other members. Society is changing and the law needs to change with it.”
