Clear, practical support during divorce

Divorce is one of the most difficult things anyone can go through. Our divorce solicitors will guide you through the process, and make sure you get the best result possible in the circumstances.

We'll look at everything - from your financial assets, property and childcare arrangements - and work out a strategy to help you get the best possible result.

However you feel, you need a good divorce solicitor. More than that, you need somebody you are comfortable with. Somebody who understands the challenges ahead and the impact it will have on you and your family. Somebody who will not judge you but will give you all the support you need right from the start.

Our divorce solicitors understand the complex, intense emotions that divorce proceedings stir up. Our team has the experience and depth of knowledge to steer you through the bumpy journey. Every relationship is different, and we're here to give you what you need. Whether you need a sympathic shoulder, or a divorce solicitor to fight your corner - we'll find the approach that works for you. We're here for you at every step of the process.

When can I get divorced?

Legally, the only basis for divorce is the ‘irretrievable breakdown of marriage’, which can be established in one of five different ways:

  • Unreasonable behaviour 
  • Adultery 
  • Two years’ separation by consent 
  • Five years’ separation 
  • Two years’ desertion 

Despite these limited reasons, our specialist divorce solicitors know that the history and circumstances surrounding every divorce are unique and personal to the people involved. This is why they will take the time to understand your individual situation and to give their expert guidance based on that.

We're specialists in child law

Our team understands how critical it is to protect and promote the interests of your children at every stage, whether you are instigating the divorce or responding to it. And if your case has an international aspect, our specialist family law lawyers have the know-how to guide you through the potential complexity of other countries’ legal systems.

We look at every angle

Our people are on hand to ensure that every aspect of your divorce is properly managed. They will give you sensible and realistic advice, every word of which will be geared towards protecting your interests. And our aim will always be to find the quickest and most efficient way to a resolution that suits you.
