The end of the ‘blame game’

Rebecca Higgins Blog

Further to our blog article last week, we are pleased to report that the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill has cleared all final stages within the House of Commons, meaning that the Bill will receive Royal Assent in due course and the current law regarding divorce will be no more.

This is a widely supported change, by many members of the public and legal profession, including us! No fault divorces will hopefully begin to take place in 2021 – there is much work to be done in updating rules and procedures first.

Upon the introduction of the new law, we will ensure that you are updated as to what new steps need to be taken. As always, we will be able to guide you through the new procedure and provide you with expert advice.

For the time being, the current law remains in place and we will continue to provide you with specialist advice and assistance to help you through your divorce.
