Divorce and relationship breakdown

A relationship breakdown or divorce is a stressful, emotional and difficult time for everyone involved. Our divorce lawyers can help you through the process, making sure you have all the support you need for the next stage of your life.

Very often in a divorce or relationship breakdown there are children involved, and of course there are also  financial consequences to consider which can be complicated. Our experienced divorce lawyers can assist you through the process,  providing you with expert  legal guidance when planning for your future.

Our team is highly experienced in providing advice and support on a broad range of issues concerning a divorce or relationship breakdown, so can be trusted to handle your divorce process with great competence.

We also specialise in collaborative law, an approach that gives couples the opportunity to separate without necessarily going to court. Often quick in comparison to traditional divorce proceedings, this can be a good option for a couple wanting to separate amicably.

We can provide advice on the grounds for divorce which are:

  • Your partner has committed adultery and you find it intolerable to live with him/her
  • Your partner has behaved in such a manner that you cannot be reasonably expected to live with him/her
  • You have lived apart for two years and you both agree to there being a divorce
  • Your partner has deserted you for a period of two years or more
  • You and your partner have lived apart for five years or more, whether or not your partner agrees with the divorce

We understand that divorce can be tricky to start talking about. That’s why we offer a free, no obligation 20 minute consultation, so you can understand the high levels that we operate at and we can leave you to make your own decision from there.
