Child with arguing parents

Couples seeking a divorce in England and Wales must either spend a minimum of two years separated or one must blame the other for the marriage breakdown, citing adultery or unreasonable behaviour.

Even if both partners mutually agree the relationship is over, they still must apportion blame if they wish to waive the two-year waiting period.

Removing blame from the divorce process will go a long way in reducing conflict between separating partners and in minimising the impact on any children.
