Quick Enquiry


Getting a Divorce

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:

  1. Adultery
  2. Unreasonable behaviour
  3. Two years separation (with the other party's content)
  4. Five years separation
  5. Desertion (in rare cases)

National Divorce Solicitors

Our divorce solicitors operate on a national basis via our offices in LondonWatfordBristol and Birmingham. We also have an office in Henleaze where we can meet clients, convenient for anyone based in North Bristol and beyond.

International Divorce Advice

Our divorce solicitors can also advise you in respect of international divorce issues:

  • you may live abroad but want your divorce dealt with by the courts in England and Wales
  • you may have married abroad
  • you have recently returned following working or living abroad
  • you have a pre-nuptial agreement which was drawn up abroad

This area of divorce law is complex and it is important that you seek early specialist advice from experienced divorce solicitors.


Collaborative Law

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 divorce solicitor 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.
