Di­vorce law re­forms

Burton Mail - - National -

NO-FAULT di­vorces would be in­tro­duced un­der a planned shake-up of the “ar­chaic” law governing the end of mar­riages, the Jus­tice Sec­re­tary has an­nounced.

The need for cou­ples to sep­a­rate or al­lege “fault” would be taken away un­der a pro­posed change un­veiled by David Gauke.

Spouses would also be stripped of any right to con­test a di­vorce ap­pli­ca­tion made by their part­ner, a con­sul­ta­tion launched to­day has pro­posed.
