Our team of  legal experts understand the stress that divorce entails. Combining this with our working knowledge of divorce law allows us to provide a high quality service to each of our clients no matter how complex the situation. We regularly deal with all aspects of divorce, separation of unmarried couples, dissolution of civil partnerships or nullity and judicial separation.

It is often difficult from the outset of the matter to provide an exact timescale of a divorce, although we can advise you on an estimate of the time involved and costs at the initial consultation. As leading divorce lawyers, we are able to provide you with carefully tailored advice on your situation through meticulous planning and discussion with you.  Our divorce advice will involve advising you as to the prerequisites and conditions which would  need to be addressed before ultimately obtaining a Decree Absolute.

In order to commence divorce proceedings, you must ensure that you first have the grounds to file for a divorce under the law of England and Wales. There are currently five grounds under which you can apply for a divorce:

  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • Desertion
  • Two year separation
  • Five year separation

Please note that to be eligible for a divorce, you must be married for at least one year. For further information about the new “No Fault Divorce” that is due to be introduced in April 2022, please follow the URL to our blog page.

If you are unsure as to which ground would be applicable for your divorce, please call us today for a no obligation chat to discuss your specific circumstances.
