Widespread calls to reform divorce laws appear to be falling on deaf ears after the government confirmed it has no current plans to change existing legislation. Asked by Lord Pendry (Thomas Pendry) whether the government had any plans to review the fault-based divorce system, justice minister and House of Lords spokesperson Lord Keen of Elie (Richard Keen QC) said the government was committed to improving the family justice system so that separating couples can ‘achieve the best possible outcomes for themselves and their families’. Keen, in his written parliamentary answer, added: ‘Whilst we have no current plans to change the existing law on divorce, we are considering what further reforms to the family justice system may be needed.’ Family solicitors were disappointed by the news.
