Divorce Law changes afoot
The complete legal service
MP's will debate the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill today, Monday 8 June 2020, as it receives its second reading in the House of Commons.
The last time such changes to divorce law were contemplated was in 1996 and those provisions never came into force! Resolution, an organisation of over 6,500 family lawyers and other family law professionals, has long since campaigned for a divorce law that does not require apportioning blame, thereby avoiding the potential to stir up emotions, which may already be running high.
Resolution has referred to this as a “Once in a generation chance to change our outdated divorce laws and end the requirement to apportion fault”. Resolution says it will be “a tonic to many family law practitioners during a time of great uncertainty.”
Our family department is firmly committed to working with our clients during separation and divorce to keep the costs, conflict and stress to a minimum. We can advise on all financial and children matters associated with the divorce process and offer an initial detailed consultation, at a fixed fee.
