  1. Divorce

    We understand what a traumatic experience marital breakdown can be so we know how important it is to get clear legal advice about a divorce as early as possible to help you better understand and deal with the process.

    From 6 April 2022, to obtain a divorce it is still necessary to show that a marriage has irretrievably broken down. However, this is simply done by one or both spouses confirming to the court in the divorce application that this has occurred.

    The Divorce Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 introduced ‘no fault divorce’. Anyone seeking a divorce on or after the 6 April 2022 will be able to use the new law instead of the previous fault-based system which required blame to be apportioned.

    Our advice on these emotive issues will be clear and pragmatic and we will guide you through the process as supportively as we can. 

    Our family team can usually offer clients a fixed fee for dealing with their divorce, click here to find out more.
