Is divorce law going to change?

Is divorce law going to change?

23rd July 2018

Divorce law hasn’t altered in 45 years and in my video below I examine whether it should now be changed.


  • At present, you need to rely on 1 of 5 facts that are listed in the Matriomonial Causes Act 1973.
  • It is “unreasonable behaviour” in particular which can cause problems.
  • The Court wants to preserve the sanctity of marriage so you need evidence to get the divorce through.
