Divorce lawyers argues for no-fault divorce

A leading divorce lawyer is campaigning for no-fault divorce and has taken her campaign directy to Conservative Party members.
Ayesha Vardag, founder of London firm Vardags, pleaded her case to delegates at the party conference to lobby their MPs and bring out a change in the law.
Vardag, as reported by the Law Gazette, she was motivated to launch the Campaign for Family Law Reform after seeing progress in parliament stall while clients continue to be corralled into accusations they did not want to make.
She said,
“Couples need to go through the process of stating, on the record, something critical about the other individual unless they are able to wait for two years of separation.
“The process of finding fault is antiquated and sets a conflictual path for the divorce from the outset. Most importantly, finding fault doesn’t help save marriages.”
Richard Bacon MP led the No-Fault Divorce Bill through to its first reading in the commons in 2015. He said he is ready to revive legislation and ask MPs to decide whether they want change.
Bacon said, “There should be a less traumatic and less costly way of dissolving marriages that have suffered irretrievable breakdown.”
