Co-op Legal Services welcomes divorce law reforms

10 April 2019

Comment from Tracey Moloney, Head of Family Law at Co-op Legal Services:

''We welcome the government’s plans to overhaul existing divorce laws. Divorce is an incredibly personal process that brings with it unique challenges and the current legal system doesn’t always account for that.

‘’Outdated laws have meant that divorce often becomes a conflicted ordeal, exasperating the breakdown of relationships between those involved. These changes will ensure that families are fully supported and are able to navigate their way around what can be a very complicated process, removing stress at what is already a very difficult time.’’
