Divorce FAQs

Is divorce always 50/50?

Not necessarily. The court aims to make a fair distribution of assets, which doesn’t always mean a strict 50/50 split. Factors like each party’s needs, the welfare of children, the length of the marriage and the contributions of each party can influence the decision.

How long does it take to get a divorce in the UK?

The divorce process in the UK typically takes around 4-6 months if it’s uncontested. However, if there are complications or disagreements, it can take longer.
