The government have decided to remove the concept of fault from Divorce.
After this reform one or both parties will only need to tell the court that the marriage has irretrievably broken down.
Either party can give notice to the court or both together. If one gives notice then the other can join in later. In the alternative if there has been joint notice it can become the notice of one only.
Neither party can contest a divorce.
There will still be initial Decree Nisi and later Decree Absolute. There is a minimum of six months between Divorce and Decree Absolute.
All these changes apply to dissolution of a Civil Partnership.
