Divorce

When a relationship breaks down it can often be a stressful and confusing time. We can help you decide on what the best option is for you.

In order to proceed with a divorce, the marriage must have broken down irretrievably (otherwise understood to be beyond repair), and it must be for one of the following reasons:

  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • Desertion after two years or more
  • Separation of two years or more where both spouses consent
  • Separation of five years or more.

We will discuss each of these reasons with you and explain the implications of each to ensure your case proceeds as smoothly as possible.

Divorce can often be viewed as an intimidating procedure involving endless paperwork and visits to court. We are committed to making the entire process as hassle-free as possible. We will provide you with pragmatic, common sense advice that is suited to your individual situation.

Wherever possible, attendances at court will be avoided and to this end we endeavour to ensure that petitions for divorce are issued by agreement and proceed undefended. Divorce remains a legal process but we realise that for many people this may be their only experience of court and our aim is to de-mystify and simplify the steps involved for you.

We are highly experienced in all matters relating to divorce and separation and will advise you on all related issues, including arrangements and disputes in respect of children and also financial and property issues.

Together with our external expert resources, we can offer you a bespoke legal service tailored to meet your specific needs.
