Divorce

Our specialist team of divorce solicitors understand the sensitive nature of separating from a partner. We can guide you through the process, alongside assisting in splitting any finances and organising arrangements for children.

We understand that it can be highly upsetting when a relationship breaks down, which is why we will listen and consider all the legal issues, before presenting you with the available options.

Divorce is the legal dissolution of a relationship between a married couple. You may have children and shared assets such as a home or finances, all of which may be difficult to handle, particularly if you or your spouse cannot come to agreements on how your assets should be divided.

An experienced family lawyer can help advise you on how to handle these matters.

Areas of Expertise

When separating there are often many issues to resolve. We can help you with a range of matters, including:

  • Child Arrangement Orders
  • Civil Partnership Dissolution
  • Divorce
  • Domestic Violence
  • Financial Proceedings
  • Separation Agreements

Grounds for Divorce or Dissolution

When you apply for a divorce, you will need to prove that your marriage has irretrievably broken down and cannot be saved. To assess this, you must determine that one or more of the following applies to your situation.

  • Adultery
  • Behaviour
  • Separation of 2 years with both parties’ consent
  • Separation for 5 years without the other person’s consent
  • Desertion
  • *In the future there is likely to be a ‘no fault’ divorce option but it is not yet in force

Our specialist team will advise you on which approach will be most suited to your circumstances.

Finances on Separation

The splitting of property, assets and finances are often resolved after you are legally divorced.

We can help you seek financial disclosure about your spouse’s position and help you come to an agreement. If can agree outside of court, this can help speed up matters as final hearings can take around a year to conclude.

Child Arrangements

If you need help coming to an agreement with your former partner to decide on what is best for your child or children, we are on hand to help you come to a swift and amicable resolution.

We appreciate that amicable agreements for child contact are not always possible. If necessary, we can help you apply to the court for a child arrangement order.

Domestic Abuse

If you have been a victim of domestic abuse or violence from an ex-partner, then our team can help guide you through the range of legal options available to protect you and any children.

If at any time, you or others are in immediate danger, you should always contact the police on 999.
