Divorce

One of the fundamental difficulties for clients going through a divorce or relationship breakdown, is that they are forced to make incredibly difficult decisions with long-term implications, at a time they feel least emotionally able to do so.

The process of dealing with divorce and any issues arising from it (such as the finances or disputes over children) may seem overwhelming and daunting, but our divorce lawyers understand the need to provide clear and sensible advice, which not only deals with the legal consequences of separation, but also takes into consideration the emotional impact on you and your family. The process for divorce is as follows:

  • Agree the contents of the Divorce Petition, where possible;
  • Divorce proceedings issued;
  • Acknowledgment of Service;
  • Applicant for Decree Nisi;
  • Applicant for Decree Absolute
