Divorce: Finance

(asked on 22nd June 2021) - View Source

Question to the Ministry of Justice:

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to their commitment in March 2020 to conduct a review into the law relating to financial remedies on divorce, what progress they have made with that review.

This question was answered on 6th July 2021

As the Government confirmed on 22 January 2021, it has previously committed to set up a Lord Chancellor’s working group to assess any evidence for changing the law of financial provision on divorce and dissolution. The Government will announce its intentions in due course. Our current priority is to conclude the complex and important work, which is now far advanced, to implement reforms to divorce law in April next year through the provisions of the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020. The Government believes that this is a vital first step in reducing conflict.
