If you’re dealing with something as distressing and intensely personal as the breakdown of your relationship, it’s essential you get the right kind of divorce advice and legal support.
Our divorce solicitors have considerable experience in dealing with divorce and can guide you through the whole legal process.
For specialist legal advice on divorce or separation, please contact Sam Hickman on 0117 314 5435.
The process of divorce in England and Wales is based on the marriage or civil partnership having irretrievably broken down. This is evidenced by citing one of five facts: adultery, unreasonable behaviour, two years separation (with the other party's content), five years separation or in rare cases desertion.
We can also advise you in respect of international divorce issues:
This area of the law is complex and it is important that you seek early specialist advice from experienced divorce solicitors.
Under the collaborative process, each person appoints their own collaboratively trained solicitor and you and your respective solicitors all meet together to work things out face to face. Both of you will have your solicitor by your side throughout the process and so you will have their support and legal advice as you go.
You and your solicitors sign an agreement that commits you to trying to resolve the issues without going to court and prevents them from representing you in court if the collaborative process breaks down. That means all are absolutely committed to finding the best solutions by agreement, rather than through court proceedings.
We can discuss this with you in further detail if you feel this option would benefit you.
Extremely proficient solicitor that offers considered, articulate, honest advice. On a personal level, I was very impressed and came out feeling that we have a very good, very competent team working on our behalf.
