The Bill promoting new laws allowing no fault divorce has not made progress over the last two years.
At Gardner Leader we encourage an amicable approach to divorce. The current law requires one party to blame the other or rely on significant periods of separation. The possibility of a change in the law to allow parties to divorce by mutual agreement without having to do this may assist with a more positive approach by parties when then dealing with the issues involving the children and matrimonial finances.
We are happy to assist if you would like to discuss this or any aspect of your family and relationship. Please contact me on email@example.com or by telephone 01628 502883.
