Going through divorce proceedings can be a very difficult time for everyone involved, so it is important to have experienced lawyers guiding you through the process towards a fair settlement.
The family law specialists at Lanyon Bowdler can provide you with the advice, guidance and legal representation you need throughout your divorce, working in a friendly and approachable manner.
The cost of legal proceedings can be a daunting prospect so Lanyon Bowdler offers a range of flexible pricing options, including fixed fees and service level guarantees, so you know how much things will cost from the outset.
It is vital to speak to a Family Law Solicitor at the earliest opportunity when you are considering divorce proceedings so you fully understand the necessary grounds for divorce. You typically need to rely on five facts as proof that the marriage has irretrievably broken down:
If any of these facts apply to your situation, or if you are not sure if any of them do, the specialist lawyers here at Lanyon Bowdler will be able to talk you through the options available to you.
So how does the process work? Firstly, we will lodge a divorce petition with the courts and your spouse, known as the respondent, will have to confirm they have received the petition. If they do not want to defend the divorce you can then apply for a Decree Nisi of divorce, and then a Decree Absolute which completes the divorce.
Alternatively, if your spouse has already started proceedings, we can advise and represent you throughout the process.
