At the end of a week where another high profile couple's marital derailment has hit the media headlines, the Telegraph has published this 'good divorce guide'. 

Interestingly for all those involved in the field of divorce, this week has also seen the publication by the House of Commons of a paper on 'no fault' divorce. Twenty years ago when the Family Law Act 2006 was passed, we all held our breath that its proposals for the removal of the requirement of fault would be passed. Sadly not: the Act fell at the last hurdle amid fears that it would make divorce "too easy".

This view is not shared by many, including some of the most senior family judiciary in England and Wales: on the contrary, they take the view that if a couple has reached the point where their marriage has irretrievably broken down, how can it help anyone, especially their children, to start apportioning blame. Isn't the key priority for the law to help them separate legally in the fairest and fastest way, with the minimum of collateral damage?

I know that I hold a widely shared hope that this week's paper will finally lead to a long overdue change in the law.
