Divorce and dissolution of civil partnerships
We will explain the divorce/dissolution process to you, and will advise you on your rights and the options available to you.
Financial settlements on divorce
The bad behaviour of your partner will almost always have no bearing on financial settlements. We can provide advice on the financial aspects arising from the breakdown of your relationship.
Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as “common law husband and wife”. We can advise you on the legal position when you are unmarried and your relationship breaks down.
Injunctions and emergency applications
Sadly, these are commonly encountered when a relationship breakdown. They are useful where one party is being harassed, pestered or where there is domestic violence and the victim needs the protection of the court. It is possible to obtain an emergency injunction on the same day if the grounds are serious enough.
Pre and post-nuptial agreements
We can assist with pre and post-nuptial agreements. A pre-nuptial agreement is a legal agreement made prior to marriage or civil partnership. It usually sets out how assets will be divided if the parties separate or divorce. A post-nuptial agreement is a legal agreement between a married couple and again sets out how assets should be divided if the couple later separate or divorce. Such agreements can help to provide clarity but are not legally binding and cannot override the discretion of the court. However, if entered into correctly, the court will give such agreements appropriate weight as a relevant circumstance when making a decision.
