The Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill gained Royal assent on the 26th June 2020 and The new no-fault divorce law was due to be implemented in the autumn of 2021.However, in June 2021 it was announced that the reform is to be delayed until April 6th 2022.
We at Kundert Solicitors are ready for this New Legislation when it comes into force on 6 th April 2022.
What this now means is that it will no longer be a requirement to ‘blame’ the other party for the breakdown of the marriage, thus reducing the tension at an already very stressful time . The process involves a period of six months before you can obtain a final divorce order, and it is not likely to be quicker than the current process. It will however, hopefully reduce the
animosity and stress between the parties, and thus result in an amicable agreement with regard to all the related family matters, for example agreement in respect of the children and financial matters.
You do not, however, have to wait until April 6 th 2022 to discuss any Family matters with us and can of course arrange to discuss any concerns which you may have now , and the options which are open to you.
Our family team have all the expertise, are all fully experienced , and are all understanding of the considerable effect on all parties .
