What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.

A little off-topic Carlton. This is a forum relating to family law rather than a forum for political debate generally.

Legal challenges to prorogation are off-topic, yes. But I suppose there is a direct relationship between prorogation and the chances of the bill becoming law.

The OP's question was about when this "No fault" divorce is likely to become law and the short answer is, I suppose, nobody knows.

For the OP's benefit:

The Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill has been dropped.

"No fault" may (probably will) be revived at some point, but for now this bill is dead.

An update for anybody who stumbles across this thread:

Last night (17th June 2020), the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill [HL] 2019-21 (commonly referred to as "no fault" divorce bill) was passed in the House of Commons. All that is required now is for the bill to receive Royal Assent, and then implementation.

It is believed that the new divorce and dissolution law will be enacted in the autumn of 2021.
