What you should know about Divorce Dissolution and Separation Act

No More Blame Game

One of the most remarkable aspects of this new law is the elimination of the need for blame in divorce proceedings. Here is what you can look forward to:

  • No Mandatory Separation: The requirement for a period of separation before initiating divorce proceedings is no longer in place.
  • No Blame Required: You no longer have to attribute fault to the other party for the breakdown of your marriage.
  • Simplified Process: You can now obtain a divorce based solely on the grounds that the marriage has irretrievably broken down, with no need for further accusations – a truly ‘no-blame’ divorce.
  • Immediate Action: Importantly, there is no need to endure a waiting period for separation (though please note that you must wait for one year from the date of marriage before applying for a divorce).
