Delivering the keynote address at family law group Resolution's conference last week, Sir Andrew McFarlane said there had to be a better way to help couples needing help and support 'at what is plainly a difficult time for them and for their children'.

He said: 'The task of identifying, developing and then funding a better way to achieve good enough co-parenting between separated parents is a matter for society in general, policymakers, government and, ultimately parliament; it is not for judges. My purpose today is, therefore, simply to call out what is going on in society's name, and at the state's expense, and invite others to take up that call.'
