Article preview: Divorce laws look set to change, with the government planning to introduce reforms designed to reduce family conflict. The proposals follow a public consultation, with family justice professionals and others voicing their support for reform. It will mean an update to the 50-year old divorce laws, which have been shown to make the conflict worse between divorcing couples. As part of the consultation, it was found that the current divorce system can reduce prospects for reconciliation, and can also damage relationships between parents and children, following the divorce.
