No Fault Divorce
On 6 April 2022, divorce reform changes introduced a process of ‘no-fault divorce’ in England and Wales. This means that applicants do not need to show evidence of bad behaviour, such as adultery or desertion, or spend a period of time living apart in order to prove the irretrievable breakdown of their marriage or civil partnership.
The new divorce legislation in England and Wales requires one or both applicants (spouses or civil partners) to submit an application to the court which includes a statement of ‘irretrievable breakdown’ in order to start the divorce/dissolution process.
The Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 also removes the opportunity for one spouse to contest the divorce. The terminology used in the divorce process is also being updated to make it easier to understand.
You can find out more on our No Fault Divorce Process page.

What is a separation agreement?
A separation agreement means you can live apart without formally ending your marriage or civil partnership. It is a way of officially acknowledging the breakdown of your relationship without the legal finality of divorce.
Divorce is a big decision and many clients who come to see us are not quite ready to end their marriage or civil partnership immediately. If you are not sure whether divorce is the right course of action for you, we can advise you on how to formally separate from your spouse or civil partner whilst protecting your assets and relationship with any children. We can draw up a deed of separation and the matter of divorce can be dealt with at a later date. Talk to an experienced family law solicitor about drafting a suitable document.
If you do not wish to divorce due to your religious beliefs, but acknowledge that your relationship is over, then we can advise you in obtaining Judicial Separation which is accepted by the Christian church.
Thanks to your efforts and the way you have conducted this case, I have felt nothing but confidence and an overwhelming feeling that your role as a family law solicitor is more to you than just a job. Once again, thank you.
Guidance on making arrangements for children
Our divorce and separation solicitors are approachable, down-to-earth, and will listen carefully to your situation so they can offer you the best advice for your individual circumstances.

This could include pensions, overseas assets, business interests, and all savings and investments. Our specialist solicitors will help you ensure full financial disclosure.
