Divorce and Separation

Ending a relationship, where to start?

If you are thinking about splitting up or divorcing, we understand it will be an emotional and stressful time. Even with the introduction of ‘no fault’ divorce laws, ending a relationship is never easy. Having the right team beside you can make it a little less fraught.

What is the Divorce Process

The divorce process itself is straightforward. What can be more complicated are the financial implications and making proper arrangements for your children. You can apply for a divorce either as a sole applicant or together you can make a joint application. Arrangements for children and financial matters are dealt with separately which is why it is always sensible to take proper legal advice before proceeding.

The actual divorce will be dealt with online, on the gov.uk website. At BBL, we can either help you deal with the process yourself, with us in the background giving tips and advice, or we can deal with the divorce on your behalf. For any help or guidance on how to deal with things, simply get in touch. We are happy to talk to you in confidence.
