There is finally a date for the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 to come into force, the date has been set for the 6th April 2022.
This has been extended from the original estimation of Autumn 2021, but there is no worry that this 6th April 2022 date could be moved due to it now being fixed as a matter of parliamentary record.
The former chair of resolution Nigel Shepherd gave a comment on this, “Whilst any delay is disappointing, we do now have certainty over the introduction of this important reform, and will be able to advise clients accordingly”
This Act will bring a change to how divorce, dissolution and separations are conducted and hopefully give them a more amicable feel in such a high intense part of someone’s life.
