I have found this: "The procedure for divorce and dissolution is contained in the Matrimonial Causes Rules 1977, established under the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973." I am confused, that why I have decided to contact you. And now I would like to understand the difference between both Acts. I would very much appreciate your answer and I completely understand if you don't have time to do so.

Good evening. I would like to know the name of the Rules that cover the current procedure for divorce: MCA 1973 or MCR 1977. Your colleague answered me: MCA 1973. But I am confused as I have found this: "The procedure for divorce and dissolution is contained in the Matrimonial Causes Rules 1977, established under the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973." Thank you very much for your answer.
Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
