No-Fault Divorce

No-Fault Divorce

April 2022 will see a significant change to the law on divorce in England and Wales for 50 years. It is an exciting time for family solicitors as the new law will radically change the way we deal with divorces. The reform as outlined in the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 will mean that it will no longer be necessary for one party to lay blame on the other to get a divorce.

Furlough Fraud – The Countdown Begins?

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) was introduced with the aim of safeguarding UK jobs during Covid-19 and has almost certainly gone a long way to do so. Under the CJRS, businesses have been able to furlough staff rather than make them redundant, with the furloughed staff receiving up to 80% of their wages from the Government in the form of a grant paid to the employer, with an upper limit of £2,500 per month. The CJRS is due to end on 31 March 2021.
