We understand that the breakdown of a marriage and going through divorce proceedings can be a stressful, upsetting and a daunting experience.
Divorce is the procedure whereby a marriage is dissolved. Provided you have been married for a year you are eligible to apply for a divorce.
The new ‘No Fault’ Divorce call came into force on 6th April 2022. You can now apply for a divorce jointly which allows couples to end their marriage jointly.
The new divorce law act is to reduce the potential of conflict between couples. The act also introduce a minimum period of 20 weeks which is known as the ‘cooling-off’ period from the start of proceedings and the application for a Conditional Order.
We will deal with the divorce proceedings from start to finish at a fixed fee and will provide an update at each stage.
We will also assess your income and see if you are eligible for a fee waiver for the court fee at no additional cost. If this is approved then you will not be required to pay the court fee.
