When a relationship has broken down irretrievably and the parties wish to bring the marriage or civil partnership to an end, we can help with divorce and civil partnership dissolutions.
We will help you:
- File a petition for divorce: apply to court for permission to divorce. You must give reason(s) for wanting a divorce.
- Apply for a decree nisi: a document saying that there is no reason why you can’t divorce.
- Apply for a decree absolute: finalising your divorce.
If you receive a divorce petition, where your husband or wife has filed divorce proceedings against you, we can represent you as the respondent.
We understand that this can be a distressing process and we will help you try and achieve a divorce or dissolution in an amicable manner, while firmly representing your interests.
We can also assist with all aspects including finances and children.
It is worth remembering that while a marriage has the effect of making a Will void, a subsequent divorce will also change its effect. It is a good idea to review and update your Will at this point. Our Wills & Probate team will be happy to assist.
