Are you considering divorce or separation? If you would like to discuss your matter, please contact one of our specialist Family Team for confidential advice that you can trust.
The breakdown of a marriage or a civil partnership can be a very stressful time for all involved, including children, but we can provide the expert knowledge and professional support to assist you throughout the divorce process.
You may have many questions to ask:
- How soon can a divorce petition be issued?
- What grounds are available?
- What are the costs involved?
- What is judicial separation?
- When is an annulment appropriate?
- Will you have to attend Court?
- How long does the process take?
So many questions, but the Family Team at Paul Robinson Solicitors have the answers.
The procedure starts with a divorce petition and ends with Decree Absolute, which dissolves the marriage. In most cases other issues arise as a result of the divorce, such as sorting out the finances of the marriage and these will need to be resolved before the divorce is finalised.
Financial claims continue against each other despite the granting of Decree Absolute and the Decree Absolute affects any inheritance left to a spouse in a will. Obtaining legal advice when considering a divorce is a must and our combination of experience, detailed legal knowledge, and the latest IT and technical support, will ensure that you receive the very best client care, support and service.
For some time now, Family Practitioners have been waiting for confirmation of when the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 will come into force in the UK. The Government have now confirmed that this will be on 6th April 2022. This means that, from this date onwards, all married couples will be able to divorce without assigning blame.
