Resolution briefs Peers on Divorce Bill

Back to news

Resolution has written to members of the House of Lords, ahead of the Committee Stage of the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill, to inform them of our views on some of the amendments tabled.

We have encouraged Peers to vote against the vast majority of amendments, a view mirrored Professor Liz Trinder in her Nuffield Foundation briefing paper, which looks at the research evidence for each amendment.

Following the Committee Stage debate today (3rd March), the Bill will move to Report Stage and Third Reading in the Lords, before moving into the House of Commons.

We hope this Bill will be passed as soon as possible, in order to make no-fault divorce a reality, and reduce conflict between separating couples, after many years of campaigning and lobbying by Resolution members.
