We understand that when relationships break down, life can become difficult.
We know that thinking about a divorce or separation can be very upsetting and disruptive.
Our service, which is delivered by highly skilled lawyers, is based upon an informal and empathetic approach. We will be supportive and non-judgemental in our dealings with you.
We will work hard to understand your individual circumstances, and offer advice that is most suitable to enable your wishes. We will consider the personal issues that you have, alongside any legal concerns.
Divorce is the legal dissolution of a relationship between husband and wife. It can be a complex process, but we endeavour to simplify the legal process, and always try to talk a language that you can understand.
We work closely with the other parties to try to reduce the acrimony, and to avoid making a difficult situation worse.
We aim to reach a resolution as quickly as possible, and by taking the problem off your hands we enable you to focus on other things going on in your life.
We know that for a variety of reasons, you may not wish to get divorced from your spouse.
Separation is the process where the parties no longer wish to live together but have not agreed that the marriage is over.
A separation agreement can be formal or informal, and we will guide you through the whole process. We will discuss with you how you would like your children, property and investments to be dealt with during the period of separation. This document can be incorporated into a court order if the parties so wish, in the event that they decide at a later date to divorce.
