Our divorce & separation expertise

We can support you with all of the legal issues involved in divorce and relationship breakdown, helping you to make a clean break and move on as quickly as possible.

Divorce proceedings

With the new UK divorce law having come into effect on the 6th of April 2022, there are many new terms that divorcing couples need to be made aware of when applying for a divorce. While no fault divorce in the UK now makes obtaining a divorce far simpler than the previous divorce law, it’s remains as crucial as ever to appoint a solicitor who is knowledgeable and experienced in the legislation change.

Our divorce lawyers can guide you through the entire legal process of ending your marriage, helping proceedings to go ahead as swiftly, smoothly and cost-effectively as possible. This includes helping you to prepare and submit a divorce application (this can now be done as a joint application). Our solicitors will ensure the sole divorce ground of ‘irretrievable breakdown of the marriage is included and can assist with responding to divorce proceedings initiated by your spouse.

Civil partnership dissolution

Civil partnership dissolution has changed under the new divorce law in 2022, meaning that obtaining a civil partnership dissolution has never been easier.

Our no fault civil partnership dissolution solicitors can advise you on all of the issues related to civil partnership dissolution, helping you to end your relationship amicably wherever possible or representing you in court where required.

Divorce financial settlements

Our divorce lawyers can help you reach a financial settlement that works for you, whether through voluntary agreement with your ex-partner or through court action where necessary. We can ensure all relevant assets are considered, including your home, other property, savings and investments, as well as pension entitlements and any other relevant financial benefits.
