Divorce, Dissolution and Separation

The current Covid-19 crisis has seen an increase in incidents which may ultimately lead to separation, divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership. Sometimes a couple in lockdown have just come to the realisation that they no longer want to live together, in other cases there has been a specific event which has damaged or destroyed the relationship (eg see our pages on domestic violence [here]).

Whether you just need to get some preliminary information or whether you are ready to take decisive action right now, you MUST equip yourself with the facts to enable you to make good decisions. Whether it’s legal advice about your children, financial maintenance or division of matrimonial assets and debts, let us give you the facts so that YOU can make the decisions.

We are able to offer virtual meetings without the need for you attending in person at our office. If you decide that you wish to proceed further we will tailor our advice to suit your needs and we can discuss costs and timeframes at that stage.

We recognise that divorce or dissolution may not be your first choice, we can offer advice on preparing a legally binding financial agreement that will divide the matrimonial assets in a fair manner without the need for the parties having to issue Court proceedings. This agreement, once made can be used in Court should you decide in the future that you wish to Divorce or dissolve your civil partnership.

We recognise that there may be children involved when a relationship ends and that you may need advice regarding how the breakdown will affect your children. We can offer advice on issues of contact and residence of the children.

In the current circumstances you may be wondering if you can proceed with your Divorce or dissolution through Court. Whilst the Courts are not open for physical attendances the Courts are continuing to offer a level of service to move matters forward which may include a virtual hearing when the time comes for your Divorce or dissolution to be heard.
