With family being the central focus for most people, it is natural that any sort of change in circumstances will lead to difficult times, especially if those changes involve particularly challenging situations.
We understand how important it is for people facing challenges within their family situations to receive the highest quality advice. It is also essential to be personally supported by experts who are in a position to offer the utmost skill and depth of knowledge across all of the issues that are likely to arise.
Our family law team are highly respected for the work they do across all areas of family practice. They are widely regarded as experts with a known ability to handle exceptionally complex and sensitive cases with care and empathy.
In order for us to process your claim, we require your original marriage certificate or an approved translation if the document is not in English. There is a standard court fee of £550 to file your petition. If you were married in the UK, we can obtain a copy of your marriage certificate on your behalf. If the marriage took place abroad and you cannot obtain a copy of the marriage certificate, we will need to make an additional application to the court when we file your petition.
Your marriage must be at least a year in length in order to qualify for a divorce. We cannot immediately advise as to how long the process of a divorce will take, as every situation is different, but the process will be substantially longer should you be unable to gain the agreement and signature of your partner.
