Although we do not undertake legal aid work there are many different ways to fund your case.
Our knowledge of divorce law allows us to provide a first class service to all of our clients, encompassing divorces of varying levels of complication. As leading divorce lawyers, we will provide our clients with advice that is tailored to their situation through a careful and thorough process of discussion.
If you are looking to commence divorce proceedings, you must first be sure that you have grounds for divorce in England and Wales. These grounds include adultery, unreasonable behaviour, desertion and either two or five years of separation. If any of the above apply, a petition for a divorce can be issued. You can find out more about the divorce process in our visual infographic.
If you are unsure whether you need a divorce, then there maybe other options open which we can discuss with you to enable you to thoroughly evaluate your situation. We work across a variety of cases including high net worth divorces, international divorce and no fault divorce.
