On 6th April 2022 changes to divorce legislation will come into effect, allowing people to divorce without fault.
From this date, couples who wish to divorce will no longer need to prove that one side is to blame for the breakdown of the marriage due to, for example, adultery or unreasonable behaviour, but they will simply need to provide a statement of irretrievable breakdown of the marriage or civil partnership to obtain a divorce, dissolution of a civil partnership or a judicial separation.
The new reforms will also allow couples to make joint applications for divorce, dissolution and separation and remove the ability to defend the decision to divorce.
