After years of campaigning by Family lawyers and interest groups, no-fault divorce is set to become reality after the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill received Royal Assent last week.
The biggest change to divorce laws in our lifetime now means separating couples will no longer have to assign blame in order to be granted a divorce. This gives people a better chance to resolve the practical matters relating to the children and finances with minimal conflict.
It will take a while to get the new systems, procedures and forms in place but it is hoped that no-fault divorces will start to take place in 2021.
