Divorce need not be acrimonious; in fact most divorces do not require you to attend Court. This can result in the overall stress involved being significantly lessened not to mention the reduced legal costs.

We also understand the cultural sensitivities regarding obtaining a divorce, and are able to advise you accordingly.
We are able to deal with English marriages and those outside of the jurisdiction.

Divorce follows a standard procedure and usually takes between 4-6 months to finalise. The process begins with the filing of a divorce petition and ends with the decree absolute which means that the divorce is official and each party is free to marry again if they wish. Consult our easy to understand chart detailing the process and contact our specialist family law team for comprehensive advice and assistance.Find out more
