Reform of the legal requirements for divorce - Open Consultation
15 September 2018 :: Ministry of Justice

New proposals to reduce conflict in divorce are set out in a government consultation consultation launched today (15 September 2018), and will apply to marriages and civil partnerships.

Proposals detailed in the consultation include:

retaining the sole ground for divorce: the irretrievable breakdown of a marriage

removing the need to show evidence of the other spouse’s conduct, or a period of living apart

introducing a new notification process where one, or possibly both parties, can notify the court of the intention to divorce

removing the opportunity for the other spouse to contest the divorce application

See above link for the full consultation.
