The current system in place for obtaining a divorce is rather archaic and relies heavily on the "blame game".
We understand that, to you, the emotional toll of divorce is likely to be immense; the legal process involved in dissolving the marriage is relatively straightforward and is usually a paper based exercise.
You must have been married for at least one year. The only ground for divorce in England and Wales is that the marriage has "irretrievably broken down".
There are 5 ways of demonstrating this to the court:
- Separation for a period of 2 years or more with the other person's consent
- Separation for a period of 5 years or more without the other person's consent
If your particular circumstances are straightforward and you do not have any children and /or financial assets, then it could be that one of our fixed fee divorce packages may be right choice for you.
