Divorce & Separation

Divorce

Going through a divorce is one of the most stressful and anxious situations a person can be involved in. At Cranbrook Legal, we understand and appreciate that when thinking about getting a Divorce, you not only need a Solicitor but someone who believes in you and your future. Our divorce lawyers advice is tailored to your specific needs and can vary from an aggressive approach to resolving the issue through conciliation and negotiation.

As renowned family law solicitors based in the heart of legal London, we handle each case with empathy and professionalism and will work decisively to achieve the right result for you.

Either party to the marriage can submit an application to the Court for a divorce and they will need to prove that the marriage has irretrievably broken down by demonstrating one of the following:
  • Your Spouse has committed adultery
  • Your Spouse has behaved in an unreasonable way and you cannot be expected to live with them
  • Your Spouse has left you for at least 2 years
  • You have been separated for at least 2 years and your Spouse agrees to the divorce
  • You have been separated from your Spouse for 5 years

Applying for a Divorce involves submitting a paper application to the Court and will rarely require the couple to attend court to explain why they are seeking a divorce. In some instances, the grounds for the Divorce can be agreed with your Spouse before submitting the application to the Court.
