Grounds of Divorce

‘No fault divorce’ came into effect in England and Wales in April 2022. This means couples are now able to get divorced without one person needing to give a reason.

Talk to a Divorce Solicitor about starting divorce proceedings. Generally, there is no need to wait to start divorce proceedings as our specialist Family Law Solicitors can make sure your divorce proceedings are dealt with as amicably and as quickly as possible.

Divorce Court Proceedings

Divorcing couples do not need to go to Court to get their divorce. Your divorce solicitor will assist you to do this.

A Divorce Solicitor may recommend that you defer applying for your Final Order until you have reached a financial settlement with your spouse and have secured a Financial Court Order.

If you have questions about starting divorce proceedings talk to our divorce solicitors who are highly experienced and can deal with the matter sensitively.
