Solicitors In Bournemouth is keeping a close eye on the legal changes proposed regarding childrenand divorce.

Ministers intend to rewrite the law in an attempt to ensure that fathers get improved access to their children after divorce.

Currently, family courts decide to leave children with their mothers in the vast majority of divorce cases.

Campaigners have long complained that without a legal right to see their children, fathers can be excluded, particularly when a split has been acrimonious. By creating the new right for children, ministers hope that judges ruling on custody disputes will ensure more equal access for both parents.

A ministerial working group will be announced on Monday 6th February 2012 to decide how the Children’s Act 1989 needs to be amended.
