Divorce & Civil Partnership Dissolution

The ending of a marriage or civil partnership can be a very difficult and confusing time for you and your family. We can guide you through the process and help you reach a speedy conclusion so that you can begin looking to the next chapter in your life.


There are a number of grounds upon which to bring divorce proceedings. You must show that the marriage has irretrievably broken down as a result of:-

  • Adultery.
  • Unreasonable behaviour.
  • Desertion for a period of at least two years.
  • Two years separation by agreement.
  • Five years separation without the need for agreement.

A civil partnership can be ended in much the same way. Again, you will need to show that the partnership has irretrievably broken down as a result of:-

  • Unreasonable behaviour.
  • Desertion for a period of at least two years.
  • Two years separation by agreement.
  • Five years separation without the need for agreement.

Our matrimonial specialist will be able to advise you about the most appropriate grounds, with a view to dealing with all issues in an amicable and expeditious way, where possible. We will prepare the necessary paperwork and support and advise you through the whole court process.

We can also help to safeguard the financial interests of you and your children. If agreement isn’t possible we will inform you of your options and the most constructive applications that can be made to the court to safeguard the financial interests of you and your children.

• WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY •

I’ve been represented by other solicitors before but none looked after me like Helen did. She is really friendly and has been there for me even after the case finished. I genuinely believe she cares about her clients and this is not just her job. If I ever need a solicitor again I would come back and have already passed Helen’s name on to a friend.
