Our Family law solicitors have vast experience in guiding you throughout the process of your divorce. We appreciate that a relationship breakdown can be extremely emotional and every situation is unique and we will ensure your best interests and welfare are considered every step of the way.

We are available to offer you advice at any of our many located offices and can offer you a cost effective and efficient service, including:

  • Who can start divorce proceedings?
  • On what grounds can a divorce petition be started?
  • What happens to the divorce petition?
  • How much will it cost?
  • Want to separate but not ready to divorce?
  • Consent Orders

Remember, if you are in the process of getting divorced you should ensure that you have an up-to-date will. Until your divorce is finalised your assets could still pass to your spouse if you should die suddenly. You may also need to change the way your home is owned. For peace of mind you should consider discussing this with a lawyer at Thursfields as soon as possible.

Although we advise clients on divorce in normal circumstance we have also been successful in dealing with clients who are victims of domestic violence and subject to alcoholism in the home, which can result in over spending by the other party. Our team is capable of successfully removing opponents from the former matrimonial home and moving to safe guard any assets.

We can obtain a divorce from your spouse in the most difficult circumstances.

A Thursfields client: “As you may remember, when I first approached you for help I found the situation a very bewildering and traumatic one. Over the ensuing months I came to realise that I had placed myself in very professional and capable hands and all has turned out much as I was promised. I can appreciate from your detailed report just how much effort has been expended on my welfare. I feel that although the respondent in this case, I have emerged thanks to your efforts remarkably unscathed. Words cannot express my gratitude deeply enough.”
