No-fault divorce 'would lessen financial burden'

MHK seeking to change current system

The legal fees associated with divorce on the Isle of Man can cost a couple their home.

Garff member Daphne Caine believes updating the system reduces the financial burden:

A public consultation on the issue is accepting responses until 2 January.
