Divorce advice

Divorce proceedings can be painful. Our divorce solicitors support you throughout the process, minimise the stresses and strains, and ensure the legal aspects of your separation reach a conclusion swiftly and smoothly.

 

In order to file for divorce, you must be married for one year and demonstrate the irretrievable breakdown of your marriage or civil partnership. This must be supported by evidence of adultery, unreasonable behaviour, desertion for a period of two years, living apart for five years, or for two years if both partners agree.

 

Our divorce lawyers advise you on which of these conditions have been met.

 

We take time to explain divorce law and the divorce procedure in simple terms and how best to obtain a divorce with minimum fuss. We also listen to your concerns and anticipate any potential problems. We are experienced in handling divorce disputes and marriage disputes.

 

As experienced divorce solicitors we are used to dealing with complex and sensitive cases, and we will keep you up to date with progress, and answer any questions you might have, in a timely, professional manner.

 

Our fees for the divorce itself are usually about £1,000 (including VAT) if everything goes smoothly. Helping you sort out the finances, arrangements for children or dealing with domestic violence will cost extra and the amount will depend on the circumstances of your case. However, we work with you to ensure you are able to plan in advance how much your legal fees will be and how you will afford to pay them.

 

If you would prefer to only consult with us from time we are able to help you as and when you need us – we call that unbundled work.

 

We offer a free telephone consultation so that you can talk to one of our lawyers and receive divorce advice before you decide whether to appoint us.
