Complementary – #Equality (Netmums: Presumption of shared parenting discussion and vote)

24/07/2010

Somebody raised an interesting point.

Subjects: Equality Family Courts; Parenting

The draft text indicates that these would be new Court Orders that would need to be applied for, rather than an actual legal presumption of Shared Parenting without the need for confirmation by a judge.

What are your views of the concept of Shared Parenting and if there was an automatic legal presumption, rather than having to apply for it?

Somebody raised an interesting point.

Subjects: FoI Act Legislation

Today the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) sets out the measures that public authorities will face if they routinely fail to meet the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) or the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR). Organisations will face action from the ICO if they regularly fail to issue a response on time, refuse to disclose information without specifying an exemption, or if they fail to respond to a request altogether.
