Divorce and Separation

We can help support and guide you through the difficult and stressful process of separation and divorce. We can also assist in advising and preparing a Separation Agreement if suitable for your circumstances.
We will ensure that you will be properly represented and understand the process.

There is only one ground for divorce and that is the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. Once you have been married for one year you will need to evidence this by one of five facts:

  1. adultery
  2. unreasonable behaviour
  3. 2 years separation with consent
  4. 2 years desertion
  5. 5 years separation

Civil partnerships can be dissolved after one year on the same grounds of irretrievable breakdown, save adultery.  We are pleased to be able to offer a fixed fee for a basic divorce.  Please see our divorce fixed fee fact sheet.

Please see our Divorce Procedure sheet for further guidance and details of our Fixed Price Divorce.
