In all cases, you must have been married or in a civil partnership for a year and meet certain criteria to petition the Court for divorce or dissolution.
You must show that the marriage or civil partnership has broken down irretrievably.
Prior to April 2022, you had to did this by proving certain facts:
This proof is no longer required, and parties can now rely on a system of no fault divorce. This removes the need to appoint blame for the breakdown of a marriage or civil partnership, and allows couples to make a joint divorce application.
Every person and every separation is different so you can choose the level of assistance you need, from a one-off consultation to review your arrangements or full representation in more complicated matters.
Therefore costs will vary, but please be assured that we have a transparent approach to fees and will provide you with cost estimates at each stage.
In many circumstances it is possible to divorce in the UK even if you do not currently live here, and we can advise according to your circumstances. We have represented clients in the Middle East, Far East, France, Australia and the USA.
