Margaret, Duchess of Argyll caused a scandal in the Sixties (Image: Chris Barham/Daily Mail /Rex) The proceedings ignited huge interest from a prurient public, with rumours of two government ministers, a member of the Royal Family and a Hollywood star being among the 88 men that the lively aristocrat was accused by her husband of entertaining, some at Inveraray Castle, the Argyll family seat in western Scotland. The marriage had fallen apart after the suspicious duke hired a locksmith to break open a cupboard at the house his wife owned in London's Mayfair. The search uncovered not only an impressive [...]

Princess Diana never wanted to give up on her marriage to Prince Charles, not even after Charles publicly admitted to his affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles. Here's what finally changed her mind-or, should we say, "who." When Lady Diana Spencer married the Prince of Wales in a fairytale wedding in the summer of 1981, she had reason to believe he still carried a torch for his former flame, Camilla Parker-Bowles. But Diana married him anyway, hoping for a fairytale ending. Instead, that ending was a rubber stamp on a set of divorce papers in 1996. But the truth is, divorce is [...]

More than half of all magistrates courts in England and Wales have closed since 2010, forcing defendants, witnesses, police, lawyers and justices of the peace to travel sometimes more than 50 miles to access local justice. The full scale of the closures is revealed in data published by the Guardian and the House of Commons library. Since the coalition government came to power in 2010, 162 of the 323 magistrates courts in England and Wales have shut – a loss of 50.2% of the estate. The latest was Maidenhead magistrates court in the prime minister’s constituency. Most have been sold. [...]

He didn’t hit her. He didn’t yell. He didn’t cheat, as far as she knows. It was just that, less than two years into their marriage, Zalika Amadou’s husband had changed. He’d become far too neglectful and indifferent for a young woman who expected, well, more. Her mother, who at 14 had married a stranger twice her age, couldn’t understand the fuss. She’d stuck with her husband for five decades until he died. But for Amadou, who married at 16, simply having a husband was not enough. So, on a busy morning in Maradi, Niger, she sits in front of a judge [...]

Domestic abusers will no longer be able to cross-examine their former partners in family courts under a comprehensive government package of reforms to tackle the issue. The landmark draft domestic abuse bill, published tomorrow after an 18-month delay, will prevent victims from being subjected to the “abhorrent practice” of being interrogated in court by their abusers, alongside other measures designed to raise awareness, support survivors and tackle perpetrators. The development, which has been broadly welcomed by campaigners, comes as new analysis estimates that the social cost of domestic abuse in 2016-17 was £66bn, more than the amount caused by alcohol [...]

Below, John Woodman, experienced business attorney with Sodoma Law, discusses the fragile circumstances of corporate divorce and the steps all businesses should be aware of. Business partners may have differing views on company growth, such as how to fund the growth through either the raising of capital or increasing debt facilities.

Financial issues tend to be the primary factor. For example, some owners may feel as though the company check [...]

— Divorce drags a lot of agony in its wake. And grief is an inescapable part of it. But the work to overcome grief after a bitter divorce can create another level of agony altogether. Emotions like anger, guilt, shame, embarrassment, disappointment, and fear are among the normal line-up after a divorce. Bitterness, however, is ugly. It oozes out of anger, resentment, and indignation over the perception of being treated unfairly. It goes beyond anger to nastiness and malevolence toward the other person. It can even carry undertones of hatred. Think about someone you have known who was so full [...]

(Photo: Pexels/MarinaShatskih) The emotional toll of divorce is greater on children who were in late childhood or early adolescence when their parents split up, a study has found. Researchers at the UCL Centre for Longitudinal Studies found that children between the ages of seven and 14 were more likely to have emotional and behavioural problems than their peers who were still living with both their parents. The study was based on the mental health data of more than 6,000 children born in the UK at the turn of the century as part of the Millennium Cohort Study. The researchers found [...]

Senior sources told the publication that the Duchess' divorce settlement came to over £2million in total – although this also covered a trust fund [...]
