Deciding that a relationship has irretrievably broken down and that the only recourse is separation or divorce is a hugely unsettling and upsetting process. Our experts are there to make the process as pain-free as they can, while ensuring the interests and well-being of clients and especially their children, are carefully considered.
It is not always necessary to proceed to Court to resolve matters and when appropriate, we will try to help clients reach agreement through discussion and mediation. We can provide access to an independent mediator where this solution may offer a viable alternative.
If the relationship has reached a point where separation or divorce is the only way forward we will provide guidance and support in preparing the petition for divorce and assisting with any settlement for financial and personal matters. If the situation arises we can also represent clients in court and deal with any litigation throughout the process.
We also provide advice on the termination of registered Civil Partnerships.
