If you decide to seek a divorce and your Solicitor orders a copy of the marriage certificate for you, they will often ask for your details, the details of the spouse you intend to divorce and the details of you father. This is because your father’s name and occupation is likely to be recorded on the marriage certificate. 
Who are they, what do they do, and why were they established? 
 
No, we are not talking about food! We are, in fact, referring to MASHs, which stands for Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub. It is essentially a system made up of professional bodies such as the police, schools, doctors, and local authorities, formed to ensure the welfare of children and vulnerable adults. The system allows all reported incidents and concerns to be collated and investigated. 
Pre Nups (or pre-nuptial agreements) are legal binding agreements, which are only legally binding if the conditions are met, (more information can be found, here) made before marriage, which sets out what should happen to finances in the event that a marriage breaks down.  
 
Prenups have become increasingly popular, as more people marry later in life than in previous generations, and people have accumulated their own assets, such as property, shares or pension pots before they get married. If you have substantial assets then, for a lot of people, it’s perfectly reasonable to take steps to protect those assets in the event of a divorce or separation in the future. MG Legal, Solicitors in Garstang can help with this. 
So, you get home from work, start making tea (dinner, if you’re in the south), make the following day's packed lunches, shout for everyone to sit down for their tea, empty the dishwasher, shout for everyone to come down for their tea again, empty the bin, shout for everyone to come for their tea again, start eating your tea, and about mid-way through, the family comes and joins you for their tea. They gobble it down as quickly as possible, whilst avoiding all eye contact so that you don’t ask them to put their dirty dishes in the dishwasher (or even worse - wash them by hand). 
With so many housing developments being built, especially in your local solicitor’s home county, Lancashire, we can all sympathise with the feeling of dread when you receive a planning application letter from your local council. But, when you receive a similar letter about your neighbour’s property, do many of us really pay that much attention? 
 
Well, for neighbours of Sophie Hicks, a renowned architect, they definitely paid attention, and said no! 
It’s a phrase that you probably won’t have heard in everyday life. However, it’s something that could affect you if you are ever the victim of any multitude of Personal Injury accidents, including an accident at work, a slip, trip or fall, or if you are the victim of medical negligence. Your Personal Injury Solicitors Preston will be able to advise you on whether you can make a claim, if you have suffered from any injury that was not your fault. 
 
The ‘Egg-Shell Skull’ rule is a principle developed by the Court, which was notably used in the case of Owens v Liverpool Corp [1939] 1 KB 394, in which MacKinnon LJ held that “it is no answer to a claim for a fractured skull that its owner had an unusually fragile one”. Put in simple terms, a claimant must be taken as they are, and not treated differently because they have a pre-existing health condition. 
You could say that there is no ‘normal’ day when you work for a Solicitors in Preston. I start my day around 8:30am, getting our file management system powered up, and making sure that I have my morning coffee (although sometimes I try and be healthy and opt for water – it’s just not the same!). 
 
First of all, I’ll go through all my emails and make sure that I deal with anything urgent from the evening before. Anything that requires a lengthy reply, or needs to wait until I have further information, gets flagged to be dealt with later in the day. 
 
A typical day starts with dealing with any post that has landed over the weekend. Usually, our clients pop things through the door, and we have a few replies to our previous week’s letters from banks or insurance companies. I mark everything with the date to show it has been received, and scan it all on. 
 
Once this has been dealt with, we can start responding! As Solicitors in Preston, it is important that we respond to any post as quickly as possible, and make sure that we are always one step ahead. 
Our Hope Jordan.
It’s always nice to get good feedback from a happy client, so with our expert team of Solicitors in Garstang, Solicitors in Longridge and Solicitors in Lancaster receiving more and more nice reviews and thank you gifts, we thought that we would share our successes. 
Firstly, what is vaginal mesh, and why has it been used in surgical procedures? 
 
Vaginal mesh is a form of synthetic netting that is surgically implanted into a woman’s pelvis. The procedure is used to help treat prolapsed organs, urinary incontinence and for the repairing weakened and/or damaged tissue which, for example, may be experienced following childbirth. 
 
There are different types of mesh, or tape, which can be used. Some mesh can be absorbable which, you may be surprised to note, is usually derived from processed and disinfected animal tissue. Alternatively, the mesh can be non-absorbable. This form of mesh is usually used for long term assistance, as the mesh will remain indefinitely in aiding damage that may be beyond repair. 
 
The insertion of the mesh is not a light procedure and can require patients to be hospitalised for a number of days following. As with all surgical procedures, there is an element of risk, however, recent debate has brought to light new findings on such risks, and their potential effects on patients undergoing treatment. 
Currently, the only reason for divorce are that of “irretrievable breakdown”, on the basis of one of the five grounds, which can be found here. The eagle -eyed among you will note that we highlighted back in January that change was coming, with Sir James Munby making his feelings in respect of the “blame game,” couples must play abundantly clear.
