Changes to divorce law

6th April 2022

New divorce laws came into force from 6 April 2022

The end of the ‘blame’ game 

Changes to the legislation on divorce came into force on 6th April 2022.

Changes to divorce law

The Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 reforms the legal requirements and process for divorce. The act aims to reduce the potential for conflict amongst divorcing couples by:

  • Removing the need to make allegations about the conduct of a spouse
  • Allowing couples to end their marriage jointly

The act also introduces a minimum period of 20 weeks between the start of proceedings and application for conditional order. This provides couples with a meaningful period of reflection and the chance to reconsider. Where divorce is inevitable, it enables couples to cooperate and plan for the future.

It will no longer be possible to contest a divorce, except on limited grounds.

This change is generally welcomed and it is hoped that it will reduce acrimony, distress and the costs of getting a divorce.
