Divorce Without Assigning Blame from April 2022

This week the story broke that the government has announced married couples will be allowed to divorce without assigning blame from April 2022.

Nicola Furmston, Senior Family Solicitors at Kerseys says:

“This is thrilling news for family lawyers who have long campaigned for this humane change in the law.

No longer will one spouse have to say that the other spouse is at fault in order to obtain a divorce without waiting two years or five years.

Blaming one party for the divorce creates argument and increases acrimony, in turn increasing costs and emotional distress.

We are so pleased that this is going to change even if we still have nearly a year to wait. The time is required to make changes to the online divorce system.”

Our specialist family law solicitors aim to make your divorce as non-confrontational as possible whilst securing the best possible arrangements for your finances, property and children.
