No blame Divorce is here!
You may have seen or heard on the news that 6th April 2022 sees the biggest change in divorce law, terminology and procedure for many decades. Couples can now divorce without waiting for 2 or 5 years or instead having to criticise the other. Whilst we have always worked to undertake the process as amicably as possible, these changes provide a welcome change of tone, hopefully then adopted by separating couples.
For more information do read the information on our divorce page.
Please bear in mind your Final Order (previously the Decree Absolute) still does not prevent further financial claims being made against you, your inheritances, business or even your estate. To achieve a clean break parties must agree a separate document called a Consent Order which is sent to the court for approval. Again, this is mostly done after disclosure and negotiation without attending court and we will always work constructively to look to achieve a fair financial settlement that protects clients.
Do call our office for more information on these important changes in the law.
