Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to prove fault for a divorce?

The Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act The Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 was introduced and implemented in April 2022 and now removes the previous concept of “fault” within a divorce. No fault divorces now mean that the previous five grounds for divorce, such as adultery and unreasonable behaviour, no longer exist and couples can file for divorce with no fault needed. The new legislation also removes the possibility to contest a divorce and introduces the option for a joint application within relationships. These new changes also apply to the separation of civil partnerships. 

How much do divorce solicitors cost?

When applying for a divorce, there will be a court fee in addition to your solicitor fees and any additional costs of the divorce.
