Our Divorce Solicitors offer a choice of ways of helping you through the Divorce procedure, according to how much you want to spend and how much support you want from our Divorce Solicitors including a Fixed Fee Divorce service.
The court will only grant you a divorce if your marriage has irretrievably broken down.
Our Divorce Solicitors can advise you on areas like this. However, for this you must show one of the following:
- Adultery by your husband or wife
- Unreasonable behaviour by your husband or wife
- Desertion for a period of at least two years
- Two years separation, if you both agree to the divorce
- Five years separation, if there is no agreement to the divorce
Our Divorce Solicitors can guide you through the three main stages of divorce:-
- You must submit a divorce petition to the court.
- If you have children under 16 or over 16 and under 18 who are in full time education or training for a trade, profession or vocation, then you will also need to complete a copy of ‘statement of arrangements for children
Application for decree nisi
- The court will send your divorce papers to your husband/wife and will ask him/her to acknowledge them and whether they agree or disagree to their contents
- Then you may apply for decree nisi
- The court will then consider all of the relevant information and decide whether you can have a divorce. If so, then the court will take the first step in your divorce called pronouncing decree nisi
Decree nisi to absolute
- This is the final stage of the divorce
- You can apply to the Court for your decree absolute, 6 weeks and 1 day after the date that your decree nisi was pronounced
