Family lawyers are being urged to call for no fault divorce by the chair of their governing body Resolution.
Nigel Shepherd says: “It’s wrong – and actually bordering on cruel – to say to couples: if you want to move on with your lives … one of you has to blame the other.”
Resolution represents 6,500 family lawyers in England and Wales.
Mr Shepherd points to polling by Resolution that found one-quarter of all divorcing couples falsify blame in their petition in order to complete the separation.
He says: “The blame game needs to end, and it needs to end now.”
