Divorce and Separation

Divorce or separation is never easy, but with our help, you can have peace of mind to really look after and protect yourself and your children in the future.

We offer a free initial 30minute consultation, if you just need an informal chat before proceeding. We’ll tell you what to expect, what the key steps are, roughly how long it takes and broadly how much it costs.

Key steps to consider with divorce

  • First of all, call for an informal chat and decide whether or not it’s what you want
  • The cost of a divorce varies on how much representation is required 
  • Amicable divorces will cost less, and are likely to take less time
  • If children are involved, it may take longer as the process is more complex
  • Once you’ve applied for a divorce, agreed details such as split of your assets, your divorce will be read out in court and you will receive a Decree nisi
  • 6 Weeks later, you will be officially divorced and this is called a Decree absolute
