REPORT OF DIVORCE COMMISSION AND THE MEDICAL PROFESSION. THE changes in the law which are proposed in the Report of the Royal Commission on Divorce and Matrimonial Causes, ;and more particularly those to which the signatories of the Minority Report object, will provide topics for much dis- cussion before they are embodied in an Act of Parliament.

The current UK law on divorce was introduced from the 20 th century until today with a little change which was governed by Matrimonial Causes Act (MCA ).

Although there is an attempt to overturn the Act inbut it hasn’t been implemented. A Royal Commission in suggested that cruelty or 3 years’ desertion should be introduced as separate grounds for divorce and that the rights between wives and husbands should be equalised.

The Church was opposed to anything that widened the possibility of divorce and the recommendations of the Royal Commission were defeated in Matrimonial Causes Act s.3 (1) No petition for divorce shall be presented to the court before the expiration of the period of one year from the date of the marriage.

(2) Nothing in this section shall prohibit the presentation of a petition based on matters which occurred before the expiration of that period. The Matrimonial Causes Act was the first divorce law of general application.

The Act introduced divorce through the court. Men were able to “petition the court” for a divorce on the basis of their wife’s adultery, which would have to be proved, as would the absence of any collusion or condonation of that adultery.

The grounds for divorce set out in the Divorce Act were equally available to husbands and wives, thus removing the double standard that had existed under the U.K. Matrimonial Causes Act. Sections 3 and 4 listed the various grounds under which divorce could be sought.

The resulting case came up for trial before Lord Penzance in the Court for Divorce and Matrimonial Causes on 23 February Having been summoned to appear as a witness, the Prince of Wales was examined for seven minutes by Lady Mordaunt's counsel, the first time that a Prince of Wales had given evidence in open court.

By section 86 of the Matrimonial Causes Acta court may receive as evidence of the facts stated in it a document purporting to be either the original or a certified true copy of any certificate, entry or record of birth, death or marriage alleged to have taken place, whether in Nigeria or elsewhere.

There is a strict divorce procedure for marriage contracted under the Marriage Act, as set out in the Matrimonial Causes Act of One requires the services of an attorney to file a divorce petition and follow through with the legal processes in Court.

After filing the necessary papers in Court, there is a trial. A Royal Commission in suggested that cruelty or 3 years’ desertion should be introduced as separate grounds for divorce and that the rights between wives and husbands should be equalised.

The Church was opposed to anything that widened the possibility of divorce and the recommendations of the Royal Commission were defeated in As Sir George H Lewis, a Judge in the Divorce Court, remarked to the Royal Commission on Divorce, “A great many people take up the paper and the first thing they do is to turn up and read.

The Bill was read a second time. Divorce Law Reform Mr. KNIGHT moved the second reading of the Matrimonial Causes Bill. He said that a review of the divorce law of this country should be under- taken by a responsible Government.

Unfortunately, however, no responsible Government was in sight, so far as he could see, which would undertake that. Do matrimonial regimes exist and do they need to be addressed by the court on divorce.

Is there a default matrimonial regime. No, Hong Kong is a common law jurisdiction very similar to England and Wales. How does the court decide what financial orders to make. What factors are taken. They were days when the witness of his character, knowledge and ardent zeal were invaluable.

Reading again, for instance, the evidence he gave before the Royal Commission on Ecclesiastical Discipline inone cannot help being struck with the strength of his .The Supreme Court (initialism: UKSC or the acronym: SCOTUK) is the final court of appeal in the United Kingdom for civil cases, and for criminal cases from England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

It hears cases of the greatest public or constitutional importance affecting the whole population, including disputes relating to devolution. As authorised by the Constitutional Reform ActPart 3.A divorce may be granted only to one who has lived for at least one year in the state; among the recognized causes for divorce are desertion for two years, cruelty, insanity or physical incapacity at time of marriage, habitual drunkenness or excessive use of .
