Family Law Services – Information on Divorce

We understand that the breakdown of a marriage and going through divorce proceedings can be a stressful, upsetting and 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.

There is one ground for divorce namely that the marriage has broken down irretrievably. This is proved by one of five facts;

  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable behaviour,
  • 2 years separation with consent,
  • Desertion
  • 5 years separation

We can handle preparing your divorce papers and take you through the process. A straightforward divorce takes between 4 to 6 months to complete.

We can offer you a fixed fee divorce package to see you through the process.

Alternatively, judicial separation is available for those whose relationship has broken down but have religious or cultural reasons for not wanting to divorce. Upon obtaining a decree of judicial separation you will remain legally married but recognized as being legally separated.

Let us help you through the process – our lawyers are here to provide support, advice and assistance regarding what can be a complex area of family law.
