How will your divorce solicitor help you?

At the initial meeting, your solicitor will discuss your circumstances with you in order to provide advice on the best next steps.

This can include the reasons for the breakdown of a marriage or civil partnership, the date of separation and details of any children.

Your solicitor will explain the options available to you including how you can reach a resolution in your case. This could be through negotiation, collaboration, mediation, arbitration or litigation.

What are the grounds for divorce?

To file for divorce, you will be required to prove that the marriage has irretrievably broken down. This can be through one of five facts:

  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • Desertion
  • 2 years of separation with consent
  • 5 years of separation (no consent required)

The most commonly used facts in divorces are adultery and unreasonable behaviour.

It is important to remember that the reason for the breakdown of a marriage will very rarely affect how any finances are divided.
