Rayhana Kausar, Graduate Chartered Legal Executive in Astle Paterson’s Family Department discusses Sir James Munby’s recent comments that radical and fundamental reform of divorce is urgently required.
Rayhana said, “As set out in the recent article ‘Munby urges radical reform of family courts’ in The Law Society Gazette, the president of the Family Division has stated that the Government must intervene and should remove ‘fault’ as a fact for establishing that one party is entitled to a divorce.
Further, Sir Munby stated his wish for a time ‘when we should at least consider whether the process of divorce still needs to be subject to judicial supervision.’”
Rayhana noted that “if the law was altered to allow a married person to seek a divorce without having to blame their spouse of wrong-doing then it is likely that much heartache could be saved – both to the parties involved and any children.”
