UK to modify Divorce laws
The UK government has announced that divorce laws in England and Wales would be changed as soon as parliamentary time became available. Lawyers have appreciated government plans to permit no-fault divorce to allow families to function after a marriage breakdown. Under the existing Act 1973, a spouse has to prove their partner is at fault through adultery, desertion for divorce proceedings to start. The changes in laws will facilitate joint application for divorce, to provide minimum 6 months time frame to come to any results.
