Guiding You Through ‘No-Fault Divorce’

Unprecedented reforms in divorce laws have resulted in the welcome introduction of No-Fault Divorce on April 6, 2022.

The monumental changes remove the need for separating couples to prove fault or to live apart for at least two years before being granted a divorce. They also mean a divorce application cannot be defended or contested.

Although the ‘blame game’ element has been eliminated from the divorce process, there are vital areas where clients seek our expertise to guide them through the new process and associated children and financial issues. 

They specifically include arrangements for putting children’s wellbeing and best interests first as well as negotiating critical financial matters such as maintenance, housing and the division of pensions, properties, and investments. Potential tax implications always require specialist advice and before a Final Divorce Order, which legally terminates the marriage.   

Jones Myers’ highly experienced family lawyers will support, advise, and guide you through all the steps and processes required.
