Why Would Someone Need This Service?
Divorce or dissolution of partnership becomes necessary when parties in a marriage or civil partnership no longer wish to remain together. In such situations, an experienced divorce solicitor can guide you through the process. If there is any doubt about whether the parties have entered a valid marriage, it is possible to apply to a Family Court for a decision on whether the marriage is valid in the UK.
How Does the Process Work?
With the introduction of no-fault divorce, the role of divorce lawyers has evolved. It is no longer necessary for one party to blame the other for the breakdown of the marriage in court. A statement confirming that the marriage has irretrievably broken down, made by either one or both parties, is sufficient. Divorce solicitors can assist either the Applicant (the party filing for divorce) or the Respondent (the party responding to the application), or both spouses in a joint application. Under the new law, the other party cannot challenge the divorce except in limited circumstances, which your divorce lawyers can explain in detail.
How Long is the Legal Process When Getting a Divorce?
Typically, with prompt action from both parties, the divorce process takes about six months to complete. Divorce solicitors can help streamline this process.
Is It Expensive? How Do the Costings Work?
Your first consultation with our divorce lawyers will be for a fixed fee. The subsequent fees depend on whether we represent the Applicant, the Respondent, or if it’s a joint application. Grant Saw’s divorce solicitors work to a fixed fee for acting for the Applicant, and we provide cost estimates for representing the Respondent based on individual circumstances.
What Should People Consider Before Calling?
Before contacting divorce solicitors, it’s advisable for both parties to discuss key issues like arrangements for children, property, and finances. Our divorce lawyers can guide you through these discussions, aiming for a smooth and amicable resolution.
