Divorce

Divorce can be very upsetting and stressful, and you need a lawyer you can trust to do the best for you and secure the best outcome. Divorce is tough but we will do all we can to ease the pain and get you through the worst of it by taking the pressure off you and sorting it for you.

We will sort out the sharing of marital assets and money. If your spouse will not agree to what is fair, our expert advocates will appear for you in Court to secure the right outcome.

We will tell you about the costs. We will keep them as low as we can. We can do fixed fees for some stages of the work. We will get you through it.

The Divorce process


Petition

The petition starts the divorce. It sets out the reasons for the divorce and must satisfy the court that one of the “grounds” for divorce is met. The petition is sent to the court and then to your partner.

Decree Nisi

After you file a petition and the other side has acknowledged receipt, you apply for Decree Nisi. A judge checks the papers and if all is well issues a certificate that you are entitled to a Decree Nisi, the first decree.

Decree Absolute

No less than 6 weeks and a day from the Decree Nisi, you can apply for Dcree Absolute. Only at Decree Absolute is the marriage legally over. You may delay the application if the finances have to be sorted out.

Financial matters

Talk to us about your financial circumstances as no two people are the same and we can give individual advice. Some people reach agreement and we can draft the necessary paperwork. For others, the court must decide and we can help you through the court process.
