No-Fault Divorce in England and Wales
On 6 April 2022, the divorce process changed. New legislation introduced a system of ‘no-fault divorce’ and removed the need for spouses to apportion blame if they wish to end their marriage or civil partnership.
The new divorce process in England and Wales enables one or both spouses to submit a statement of ‘irretrievable breakdown’ to the court when they apply for a divorce or dissolution – there is no longer a requirement to prove one of the ‘five facts’ (grounds for divorce). This means there is no need to show evidence of bad behaviour or spend a period of time living apart.
There is no longer a route for one party to contest the divorce and the terminology used has been updated to make the language of divorce easier to understand.
Contact Wellers Hedleys to find out more about No Fault Divorce.
