No Fault Divorce Explained - By Clive Hogan
No Fault Divorce will come into force and replace the existing divorce regime on 6th April 2022.
In this video blog Clive Hogan, one of our Associate Solicitors at Watson Thomas, will explain the basics and answers some commonly asked questions about No Fault Divorce.
Clive will detail what No Fault Divorce actually is and take you through how it differs from the old divorce process. This includes explaining about the new wording that is coming in and how long the divorce process will now take as there are new mandatory waiting periods that all are subject to.
Under No Fault Divorce spouses can apply jointly or solely to bring their marriage to an end. Clive explains what type of application is appropriate and when. He will also tell you how you should proceed if you want the Court to be made aware of your spouse’s poor behaviour, for example, if they have had an affair or been abusive. Clive will also discuss if the costs have changed and whether a divorce will resolve your matrimonial finances.
