Despite the introduction of the no-fault divorce this year, pre-nuptial agreements are still a good idea. Ultimately, the no-fault divorce system is going to make things easier. The process is still the same but there is now a cooling off period which we did not have before, so it is likely to take longer than it did previously. The positive difference of course is that one party will not have to make allegations of the other at the start of the case.
As we move into the new era of “no fault divorce” following its introduction on 06 April 2022 more people will consider applying on-line themselves.
Divorce laws have been overhauled for the first time in 50 years, putting an end to the "blame game" for couples wishing to split amicably. Today (6th April 2022) marks the change to No-Fault Divorce.
A long-awaited 'no fault' divorce law comes into effect on 6 April 2022, meaning married couples wanting a divorce will no longer have to blame anyone for the relationship breakdown.
The Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 (which will be implemented in Autumn 2021) will now allow couples, for the very first time, to apply for a divorce order by stating that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.
The introduction of a no-fault divorce system will mean that couples can petition for divorce jointly without either person being held at fault. Lawyers will be better placed to support couples to resolve matters as constructively and amicably as possible, minimising the impact on any children they may have.
Coming to the decision that your marriage/civil partnership has come to an end is not an easy time for anyone.  During this time of heightened emotion you will also be faced with the difficulties of the practicalities of the divorce procedure itself and the financial implications of the separation.
