We discuss the new no-fault divorce on BBC Radio Cumbria
7th April 2022
Our Family lawyer Jamie-Lee Morgan was a guest on BBC Radio Cumbria yesterday and discussed with Matt Bailey the changes to the divorce law in England & Wales. The changes, which came into force on the 6th April, put an end to the blame culture that previously surrounded divorce proceedings and introduced the ‘no-fault divorce’.

Jamie and Matt talked about the changes and what their impact might be in practical terms for couples looking to separate. You can hear the full discussion here, around 16 minutes into Matt’s show…
