Divorce & Separation: Divorce Solicitors Shrewsbury, Hereford, Ludlow, Conwy, Telford

 

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 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.

Divorce Advice

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:

  • Two years’ separation: You have lived apart for two years and both consent to a divorce.
  • Five years’ separation: If you have lived apart for five years or more, you can begin divorce proceedings without your spouse’s consent.
  • Unreasonable behaviour: Your spouse has behaved so unreasonably that you no longer want to live with them.
  • Two years’ desertion: Your spouse moved out at least two years ago and you no longer live together.
  • Adultery: You can no longer tolerate living with your spouse because they have committed adultery.

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.

Divorce Procedure

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.
