We are expert divorce and  family lawyers. We specialise in the full range of family legal matters including divorce in England and Wales, financial issues, property settlements and children’s matters. Whatever your situation, we are here to help you.


With our help, your divorce could be a reasonably straightforward procedure.  We are skilled at making the divorce process as smooth as it can be whilst also being able to fight your corner if the need arises.

In legal terms, the only ground for a divorce is on the basis of ‘irreconcilable breakdown of marriage’.  This can be based on either adultery, unreasonable behaviour, desertion for more than 2 years, 2 years separation with the other party’s consent or 5 years separation.

Unless basing the petition on 2 years separation you do not require the other party’s agreement. Usually the divorce process takes between 3 to 6 months.  Often no court attendance is necessary during the whole process.  We are also experts in resolving problems such as where the other party cannot be found. If your divorce is more straightforward, we move quickly to help you arrive at a conclusion as soon as is possible.
