The introduction of the no-fault divorce system in April 2022 means that it is now easier than ever before to obtain a divorce here in the UK. It took a decade to implement this new system, but now that it is in place it allows for an amicable agreement to part ways, which was much more difficult before.
A no-fault divorce can be applied for as a joint application or you can submit an individual application according to your personal circumstances. Although the divorce proceedings are much more simple it is very important that you speak to us at Prentice Family Law, so that we can delegate one of our specialist divorce solicitors in Guildford to guide you through the process and make sure that you achieve the best possible results for yourself and your loved ones.
