Things to think of in Law and in Life

No fault divorce is hopefully on the way!

13 Jan 2020 

You will no longer have to prove fault to get divorced after the government announced it would  introduce legislation. 

Justice secretary David Gauke said 'firmly believe now is the right time to end this unnecessary blame game for good'.

It is also proposed to remove the ability of one spouse to 'contest' a divorce in court. 

Irretrievable breakdown will be retained as the sole ground for divorce.
