Dominic Raab – 2022 Comments on No Fault Divorce

The comments made by Dominic Raab, the Deputy Prime Minister, on 6 April 2022.

The breakdown of a marriage can be agonising for all involved, especially children. We want to reduce the acrimony couples endure and end the anguish that children suffer.

That’s why we are allowing couples to apply for divorce without having to prove fault, ending the blame game, where a marriage has broken down irretrievably, and enabling couples to move on with their lives without the bitter wrangling of an adversarial divorce process.
