New Divorce Law Comes into Force!
From 6 April 2022 married and civil partnership couples can obtain a divorce without having to blame the other party. This is the biggest shake-up of divorce laws for 50 years. It means that:
- Decree Nisi is no more – the ‘Conditional Order’ is new
- Decree Absolut is no more – the ‘Final Order’ is new
This is a welcomed, long overdue change in the law surrounding divorce petitions. The new law aims to reduce potential hostility between couples when separating by removing the need to apportion blame.
