New Divorce Laws come into effect April 2022

June 10, 2021

Through Resolution, an organisation I am accredited through, UK Ministers announced yesterday that the “Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020”, which will allow married couples to divorce without assigning blame, will now come into law on 6th April 2022.


This date is later than originally indicated as it is understood that this is to allow time for the necessary IT changes to be made to the Court’s divorce system. However, the 6th April 2022 is now fixed as a matter of Parliamentary record, rather than the indicative timetable previously being worked towards.

There has been a call for “No Fault Divorce” over many years and whilst April 2022 may seem some way off, the certainty over the introduction of this important reform will enable clients to be advised accordingly and allow practitioners to become acquainted with the new rules in good time before the Act comes into force.
