No-fault divorce (April 2019)
The government’s Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill will reform the divorce process to remove the concept of fault. Many legal professionals feel current divorce law is out of date, particularly following the 2018 Owens v Owens case.
The reform will see the introduction of “no-fault” divorce and the removal of the need to allocate blame on one party.
This will be the biggest reform in our divorce laws for nearly 50 years.
