  • Take instructions to prepare the divorce papers
  • Keep you updated and represent your best interests
  • Wherever possible help you reach a divorce agreement with your ex-partner without having to go to court.
  • Present your case if a court hearing is required to determine the terms of a financial agreement or property settlement or you are seeking a financial provision order

Help you to understand what the Judge can and cannot do in terms of your divorce settlement and explain what the Judge's decision means for you

Lee Marston and Marie Whittaker are both are members of Resolution, an industry organisation committed to finding constructive solutions to family disputes.

As such we are ideally placed to provide the support and guidance you need at this testing time and we have particular expertise in dealing with high-value financial provision proceedings and complex child disputes.

By getting in touch with our divorce solicitors we can provide a free or on a fixed fee basis an initial meeting fairly quickly to go over the details of your case and advise you on your next steps. 

Divorce or dissolution is the legal process used to end an unhappy marriage or civil partnership. This process is dealt with separately to other issues which could include child custody, financial settlements and the splitting of property and assets.

In order for a divorce or civil partnership order to be granted, you simply need to state that your marriage has irretrievably broken down.  The new process for "no fault divorce" was introduced in April 2022.
