No Fault Divorce: the Latest

It's back. The Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill. It was murdered by the dissolution of Parliament for the general election but has just been formally reintroduced.

Big deal? It is if you after matrimonial freedom. in England and Wales. You will find my summary of what it is all about by clicking here http://www.breakinglaw.co.uk/search/label/matrimonial%20law

I am expecting the legislation to fly through Parliament. It will not come into force immediately as it will first require detailed rules. I'll update you on the likely implementation date as soon  as I can. * In the meantime, you can go about securing your freedom under the present law which, in the vast majority of cases, should not present an enormous problem.

* I'll eat my Woking Pizza if it is before January 2021. More as and when further information reaches me.
