Changing family law for changing families
Family break ups are a sad fact of modern life and the shape of the family has changed. Legislative changes to family law in 2012 and 2013 were a missed opportunity to reform many important policies. Our ongoing campaign, Changing Family Law for Changing Families, focuses on improving family law to reflect the needs of 21st century families. The campaign calls for:
- No fault divorce
- Public funding for dispute resolution
- Legal protection for couples who live together
- Enforceable pre-nuptial agreements
