Removing blame from the divorce process will allow separating couples to focus on what really matters, the Law Society of England and Wales said today as it responded to a government consultation on no-fault divorce.

Law Society president Christina Blacklaws said:

"The current requirement for divorcing couples in England and Wales to allege one of five fault-based facts exacerbates conflict between separating partners. It makes it much harder for separating parents to focus their minds on the needs of their children when making child arrangements.

"Introducing 'no fault' divorce would change the way couples obtain a divorce – for the better."
