Helping you overcome the relationship breakdown through divorce

If your marriage breakdown has become irretrievable, you can file for divorce. At this stage you may take the necessary legal steps and we will provide personal, tailored help and advice to progress your divorce procedures.

There may be a number of reasons to file for divorce, including the following:

  • Adultery by your spouse
  • Your spouse’s behaviour
  • Desertion
  • Separation for two years (with consent)
  • Separation for five years (without consent)
You won’t be able to apply for a divorce unless you have been married for at least a year, and you or your spouse must have been resident in England or Wales for at least six months, or if you or your spouse reside in a country which is part of the European Union.
