DIVORCE & SEPARATION
Deciding that a relationship has irretrievably broken down and that the only recourse is separation or divorce is a hugely unsettling and upsetting process. We are there to make the process as pain-free as they can, while ensuring the interests and well-being of clients and especially their children, are carefully considered.
If the relationship has reached a point where separation or divorce is the only way forward we will provide guidance and support in preparing the petition for divorce and assisting with any settlement for financial and personal matters. If the situation arises we can also represent clients in court and deal with any litigation throughout the process.
We also provide advice on the termination of registered Civil Partnerships.
GROUNDS FOR A DIVORCE:
Desertion for a period of at least two years
Separation for a period of at least two years (if both parties consent)
Separation for a period of at least five years (no consent required)
