Mediation becomes compulsory for divorcing couples | Wright Hassall

Mediation becomes compulsory for divorcing couples | Wright Hassall | Legal News and Advice | Scoop.it
In an effort to reduce the number of divorce cases ending up in court, the government started to encourage divorcing couples to use mediation as the first port of call. Since April 2011, any application to issue court proceedings was supposed to be accompanied by a form (FM1) that confirmed that mediation had been considered in all cases involving money and/or children. As it transpired, this requirement appeared to be largely ignored and court proceedings commenced regardless, with no obvious sanctions for non-compliance. Therefore, under the Family and Children Act 2013, attending an initial Mediation Information Assessment Meeting (MIAM) (which is essentially an introduction to the mediation process, not the process itself) became mandatory in April 2014, except for cases where safety (primarily domestic violence and / or abuse) is an issue.

The desperate tactics being used to avoid inheritance tax | Legal News and Advice | Scoop.it

With the inheritance tax threshold frozen, families are resorting to more desperate measures to avoid death duty.

 

According to a paper published last week by the Institute for Fiscal Studies, if the threshold remains the same, more death tax will be paid as a proportion of all tax income by 2018 than at any point since the Seventies.
