Owens v Owens is a case that no family practitioner, and indeed few outside of the family law world, could have failed to notice. The Supreme Court hearing in May reinvigorated the calls for 'no-fault divorce' and the judgment today has made headline news. It is a situation that everyone can understand, form a view on and in some cases even relate to.
James Carroll and Jemma Pollock prepared a summary on the Owens v Owens case released to The Law Society.
