Taking the Blame Out of Divorce

Justice Minister, Lucy Frazer spoke to Victoria Derbyshire about the consultation on reforming the current divorce law which is due to close on December 10th.  

As it stands at the moment couples are required to blame each other for the breakdown of a marriage.  This increases conflict, especially for children, at an already difficult time. 

The government are looking to remove this requirement and the consultation is seeking views on the detail of how best to change the law to reduce family conflict and strengthen family responsibility.
