Again, I urge you to instruct your department to withdraw the draft proposal SSAG as soon as possible. I support the concept of normative spousal support guidelines, but not in the form presented in this proposal.
I believe that it was Lord Hewart who said, and I am paraphrasing of course, that justice must not only be done, it must be seen to be done. Under the SSAG, the determination of spousal support will become an opaque computer calculation incapable of interpretation or rational explanation. This is not Justice.
