How do I get a Divorce?

Going through a divorce is never easy but going through the unknown process alone can be even more difficult. It can often be a draining, emotional and frustrating time if not handled by an expert divorce solicitor.

That’s why at AmicusLaw we’re here to guide you every step of the way so that the whole process of your divorce goes as smoothly as possible. We’re on your side.

So how do I get a divorce at AmicusLaw?

If you’ve decided you want to get a divorce then now is the time to give us a call. We offer a fixed fee initial consultation for £195 plus VAT for up to 1 hour. This includes a follow up letter containing our advice too. This initial consultation allows us to hear more about your unique separation and start the process of your divorce in more personal detail.

Since the  Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020  came in to force in April 2022, you no longer need to provide a reason for the breakdown of your marriage or civil partnership. No Fault Divorce means that couples can file for divorce or dissolution without having to place the blame on their former partner to prove the irretrievable breakdown of the relationship.

What happens next?

Divorce is usually an online process from the issue of the Application to the Final Order which formally ends your marriage. After your consultation, we will take you through the first steps of your divorce and beyond. But don’t worry, we will be guiding you through it all.

What if I’m not ready to divorce?

If you are separated but don’t feel ready to divorce or dissolve your civil partnership immediately, then there is an alternative. This is called a Separation Agreement. This confirms that you will live apart and record details of the financial arrangements that you have agreed with your former partner.

A Separation Agreement is a form of contract. They are not legally binding at this stage, however the Court will attach considerable weight to such Agreements provided they have been created in the correct way and meet certain criteria.

At AmicusLaw we know that the process of divorce is sensitive and often one of the most difficult things you will ever have to deal with. But our expert team will be fighting your corner to help protect your best interests and those of your children too.
