When starting a divorce, it is important to seek expert advice from a specialist family law solicitor. We can advise you from start to finish.
Legally, a divorce is a relatively straightforward procedure.
There is one ground for a divorce: the marriage has irretrievably broken down.
There are five ways of showing this to a Court:
- Desertion for more than two years
- Separation for two years or more with the other person’s consent
- Separation for five years or more without the other person’s consent
Most divorces proceed on an undefended basis. Often the steps are relatively straightforward and can normally be dealt with on the papers. This means that there is no need for anyone to attend court.
It usually takes about four to six months to complete the divorce. However, the overall timescale can be longer where, for example, to resolve the finances and/or anything to do with the children need to be resolved.
Extra care must be taken where the case has an international element to it because there could be more than one country where the divorce could start. The financial outcomes in each country could be starkly different and specialist advice must be taken in each country. For further guidance, please click here.
