With the incremental easing of some of the lockdown restrictions enquiries about divorce and separation are on the rise.
During the last few months, new enquires were focussed on the reactions to the restrictions imposed by the Prime Minister; such as how best to manage the arrangements for children who were used to spending time between two households (there was never any restriction to prevent the continuance of that) and the impact on the finances of the households where one or other parties circumstances were radically changed.
Now we are seeing increasing demand for advice about the divorce process and the financial consequences of a likely separation.
The process in Parliament to make a change to the Divorce law ended on the 17th of June and now awaits Royal Assent (essentially the Queen putting her signature to the new law) but the new “no fault” law allowing a divorce without blame is unlikely to become “useable” until Autumn 2021 according to the Justice Minister.
If you are thinking about or are ready to separate, we are here to assist and guide you with all aspects of that.
