Govt produces response to divorce law consultation

Breaking: government publishes its response to the Reducing Family Conflict consultation. The plans are largely unchanged – replacing the fault and separation grounds with a notification process, joint or sole applications and no defence other than jurisdiction, coercion etc. Looking forward to see a government Bill and much needed reform of a fifty year old law that is no longer fit for purpose. Fantastic to have a Lord Chancellor who has looked at the research evidence and produced a pragmatic proposal that will remove the problems whilst retaining what works.
