" Recently divorced Gary Lineker has called for a "mathematical equation" to help couples divorce. If only it was as simple and straightforward as that then a formula would have been devised long ago. While there is no mathematical formula and it is unlikely that there ever could be, we do have legal guidance as to why and how divorce cases should and will be settled. This guidance comes in two main forms. Firstly, there is section 25 Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 which sets out the factors which must be taken into account.
Secondly, there are the precedents of previously reported divorce cases which let us know how and why the courts have decided these cases. If you should ever face the breakdown of your own marriage and require legal advice, then you should contact a divorce lawyer who is a member of "Resolution first for family law", Members follow a Code of Practice that promotes a non·confrontational approach to family problems. Members encourage solutions that consider the needs of the whole family - and in particular the best interests of children.
Perhaps Mr. Lineker should instead be thinking about devising a mathematical formula for England to win the World Cup before another 50 years?"
The former England footballer, 55, has gone through two marriage breakdowns and has said he wants to see the whole process simplified. Lineker claims lawyers boost their fees by manipulating their involvement and consequently create “hate” between the parties involved.
