Marriages end for a whole host of reasons, some unsavoury, and some more amicable. However, no matter how friendly you and your spouse want to keep matters, in a society where we are encouraged to deal with legal matters as amicably as ever possible, no fault divorces still DO NOT exist.  
 
Currently there is only one ground for divorce in England and Wales - that the marriage between the two parties has broken down irretrievably. The Petitioner is required to support their petition for divorce with one of five facts. Unfortunately, no matter which ground you choose to base your petition on, the Respondent spouse can choose to defend it and argue that the marriage is not over.  
When you are looking at commencing divorce proceedings, there can be so much conflicting advice forced upon you. Unfortunately, as much as your friends, family, co-workers, etc want to help you, ultimately it may just cause you to be more confused than when you started! So, our Lancaster Solicitors have teamed up to explain what really happens during the divorce process, and what you need to do. 
 
The Office for National Statistics has found a range of trends over the years in relation to time of the year that marriages take place, and on what day. For example, with over 800 weddings usually taking place on a regular Friday, the 11th November 2011 (11/11/11) was a Friday, and it saw the number of weddings almost doubling to 1,529! Another date which is not at all popular is Christmas day. With an average of only 5 couples per year tying the knot on 25th December (an average number taken from 1970 to 2013), it would appear to be one of the quietest days of the year to get married*. 
 
Whether you choose to get married at the start of the year (a quieter time to choose, apparently!) or on a busier occasion such as Valentine's Day, it is always best to make sure that you are prepared legally for your marriage, such as considering a pre-nuptial (or pre-marital) agreement.  
 
Accidents occur in the workplace on a daily basis. Some appear trivial (tripping over loose cables, falling over objects that have been left lying around), but still can cause injury, and some are downright awful, and can result in serious harm and injury, at no fault of the employee. It's a known fact that many employers, who should know better, and can afford to train their workforce in Health and Safety, often cut corners and choose not to do so. 
Storms, bad weather and torrential rain are blamed for all sorts of problems; but you wouldn’t imagine the weather being blamed for the plethora of potholes, fissures, and, well, huge holes that have appeared in the roads and pavements around the UK in the past 12 months. Personal Injury solicitors Preston, MG Legal, expert road accident solicitors, have won thousands of pounds of compensation for clients who have suffered injury from tripping over or falling into (sometimes quite literally) the potholes the local councils will opine have been caused by the spell of recent bad weather.
