British government proposing to introduce "no-fault" divorces
If adopted after a 12-week consultation period, spouses would no longer be able to challenge a divorce application made by their partner
The British government is proposing to introduce "no-fault" divorces and make other changes to make it much easier for couples to divorce. Justice Secretary David Gauke began a consultation process to revise laws he said were "out of touch with modern life." If adopted after a 12-week consultation period, spouses would no longer be able to challenge a divorce application made by their partner.
The changes would apply to heterosexual and same-sex marriages, and civil partnerships. The proposed new laws would mean it would no longer be necessary to prove misconduct or to live apart for a certain number of years before a couple could divorce.
