We have been here before, does anyone remember when the divorce laws were going to change to 'No Fault' divorce? It didn't happen as the process proposed was criticised for making it too easy to divorce.
Happily on this occasion there is some momentum which might be unstoppable. Let's hope so. Many of my clients think that all they need to do is agree 'irretrievable breakdown', sadly that is not the case as fault has to be proved or a period of separation has to have taken place of more than 2 years.
I just want to add my voice to those who are hollering for change...Hurray.
More details have emerged about government plans to overhaul "archaic" divorce laws in England and Wales. Couples wishing to divorce could soon benefit from a less confrontational process, under proposals confirmed by the Justice Secretary David Gauke. The government has launched a consultation proposing removing the need to allege "fault", and the right of spouses to contest a divorce.
