Gwyneth has now started the divorce process from her husband, Chris Martin.
As it stands we have a fault based system for divorce in the UK but there is much discussion about whether it should be possible to divorce on a non-fault basis.
From experience I know that many clients would prefer this as it can cause a lot of uneccessart angst at the outset.
Gwyneth Paltrow has filed for divorce from Chris Martin, the Coldplay frontman. The actor cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the separation. The couple first announced their split in March 2014, declaring that after 10 years of marriage they would be “consciously uncoupling”. According to the divorce papers, however, the pair had been separated for almost a year before that announcement.
