We take a personal and pragmatic approach to divorce proceedings.
At a time of heightened tension that can affect others, including children, we’ll look at your needs and your present situation and give calm and clear advice to resolve the matter efficiently and cost-effectively.
If you’re considering getting a divorce, or dissolving a civil partnership, we can support you throughout. You will need to cite a primary reason for your separation to the court. These are – unreasonable behaviour, desertion, you have lived apart for two years (and the other party agrees to the divorce), or you have lived apart for five years. For a divorce, you can also cite adultery.
Our family team will support you to identify the most appropriate scenario and help you define which reason or reasons to base the case upon. We’ll then help you reach a settlement by negotiating on your behalf in a collaborative way, getting your divorce through and allowing you to move forward with your life.
