No Fault Divorce Update

A recent You Gov poll found that 69% of people polled felt that “People should be able to seek a divorce without having to show their spouse is at fault”. 15% felt that “People seeking a divorce should have to show their spouse is at fault”.

However, according to Lord Keen of Elie (the House of Lords spokesperson for the Ministry of Justice), the Government “have no current plans to change the existing law on divorce” but are “considering what further reforms to the family justice system may be needed”.
