At a press conference earlier this year, the President of the Family Division, Sir James Munby, expressed his view that the time has come to take uncontested Divorces, where there are no children involved, out of the Court system.
At the press conference, there was also suggestion that it is time to remove all concepts of fault as the basis for Divorce, thereby leaving irretrievable breakdown as the sole ground.
It is yet to be seen whether these suggestions will be considered further.
If you require advice in relation to Divorce then please contact our Family Department for a free 30 minute appointment to discuss your circumstances and to receive preliminary advice.
