The Family Team at Gardner Leader as a members of Resolution support the organisation's campaign to seek change in the current legislation to provide no fault divorce. This would help couples to separate amicably and without blame enabling their focus to remain on any children of the marriage and the family finances.
Thousands of divorcing couples are lying to the courts every year due to divorce laws which pit people against one another, the family law organisation Resolution has warned. Existing divorce laws in England and Wales require an accusation of adultery or unreasonable behaviour in order for a divorce to be granted in less than two years of a marriage breaking down. But more than 27 per cent of couples citing unreasonable behaviour admitted their claims were not true, but were the easiest way of getting a divorce, according to new research by Resolution. Jo Edwards, the chair of the legal body, commented: “As our research findings show, the current system is causing couples to make false allegations in court in order to have their divorce finalised within a reasonable time. This charade needs to be ended.”
