The process usually takes around 6 months, but it is usual not to finalise the divorce until a financial agreement has been reached. Wherever possible we shall try and agree the wording of the divorce petition with your spouse to enable the divorce to move forward without delay and avoid unnecessary acrimony. We will advise you on costs and procedure and will advise further once decree absolute has been pronounced.
The legal formality for getting a divorce is a relatively straight forward process. What is generally less straight forward is sorting out the practical issues, such as where each party will live, how the assets are to be split, and arrangements for any children. Before agreeing matters with your husband or wife, it is wise to seek our advice about your rights and the options available to you.
We will advise you on costs and agree our fees openly with you.
This is a complex area of the law and requires expert advice. Please contact us on 0203 733 0428 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an initial consultation to discuss the best way forward for you and we will provide you with further and specific advice tailored to your circumstances. Our experienced and understanding team are here to help you.
