Filing for divorce
In April 2021, the law regarding divorces in the UK changed significantly and couples who want an amicable split no longer have to provide a reason for divorcing.
There are two ways you can apply for a divorce:
- A joint application – both partners have to separately confirm that they want to continue with the divorce application at each stage.
- A sole application – you will need to use this method if your partner does not agree to a divorce or you think that they will not cooperate or respond to notifications from the court.
Our expert family solicitors can help you to establish which route suits your circumstances and steer you through the process of filing for divorce.
It is always advisable to obtain expert advice from a specialist family lawyer before reaching any financial settlement as part of a divorce. We can help you with:
- Financial settlements including splitting property and other assets
- Pension orders
- Childcare arrangements
- Clean break orders
Divorce costs and fixed fee divorces
Financial worries about the cost of divorce only add to what is already a difficult time and this is why we offer competitively-priced fixed fee divorces in certain circumstances. To find out more speak to our family lawyers at any of our offices.
