Baroness Deech: Debate in the House of Lords

On Monday 18th October, Baroness Deech addressed the House of Lords in a closed debate, on matters relating to matrimonial finance and what she felt was the way forward.

In an opening speech which focused on London’s reputation as Divorce Capital of the World, Lady Deech asked Their Lordships to consider laying down the groundwork for a set of fair and established principles for ancillary relief before going on to look at further possibilities, like mediation, in order to make financial dispute resolution more effective.

Baroness Deech also goes on to explain what she feels are the solutions to those problems.
