No fault divorce

The introduction of the ‘no fault’ divorce on 6th April 2022 sees a shift away from any party needing to blame the other for the breakdown of the marriage, with contested divorces becoming a thing of the past preventing unnecessary court hearings and hopefully reducing costs and time.

Removing the blame helps parties to concentrate on what is really important upon separation, that being the children and finances of the marriage which are settled separately to the divorce. The new process should provide for a more amicable approach for all involved by reducing the potential conflict with blame for the breakdown of the relationship often having been a centrifuge of conflict in the past and hindering the financial settlement and arrangements for the children of the parties, thus delaying the ability to move forward with your life.

Contact us today for us to assist with your no fault divorce and help progress your financial and/or children matters swiftly to resolution.

I engaged with your services in November 2021 in respect of my ongoing Child Arrangements Application. During this time, both you and Helen have been incredibly patient and understanding – and I thank you both sincerely for this. Your ability to capture extensive and complex detail during our calls is very impressive, and hugely helpful for me. I am consistently impressed by the thoroughness of note-presentation, as well as all the written communications to the Court, myself and the other-side’s legal representative. I would therefore have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you, to anybody requiring support in a family or child matter. Your work is of the highest order, and the way in which you deal with your client exceptional.
