Guy Mawson writes for IFA Magazine on no fault divorce

Family Senior Associate, Guy Mawson, has authored an article for IFA magazine entitled 'No-fault divorce – the end of conflict?'.

On 6 April 2022, the most significant change to divorce laws in a generation came into force. Widely reported as signalling the “end of the blame game”, the importance of no-fault divorce should not be underestimated.

However, Guy highlights that while the change to the law is welcome, spousal conflict will not simply disappear. He explains "the often far more thorny questions of agreeing childcare arrangements and a financial separation still remain as does grappling with the potential damaging impact of conflict, both emotionally and financially".

In his article, Guy covers the following factors:

  • The change to the law
  • The impact of the change to the law
  • Reducing conflict
