Today the Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, David Gauke, has announced that no fault divorce will become law. It is a decision warmly welcomed by family lawyers and represents a huge achievement for Resolution, the family law solicitors’ association, which campaigned so hard for this change.
For years, the requirement to blame one party in order to achieve an early divorce has been undermining a modern approach to divorce and separation. These days, Resolution lawyers actively encourage separating couples to work together to find solutions for their family – often in complete contradiction to the need to apportion blame in order to be granted grounds for divorce. Now this barrier is to be removed, family lawyers will be able to get straight to heart of solving the problem.
