What is a divorce/dissolution?
Divorce and dissolution is the legal process by which a marriage or civil partnership is terminated. It is a permanent measure and cannot be undone once the final decree or order has been granted.
If you are unsure about terminating your marriage or civil partnership permanently, there are ways to secure yourself financially until you make a decision. However, these are not 100% binding and so, you should discuss your position with a legal advisor.
Equally, if you do not believe in the concept of divorce and dissolution for personal or religious reasons, you may choose to get judicially separated. You may discuss this option further with one of our lawyers.
Going through a divorce or family breakdown can be extremely stressful for all those involved, regardless of your circumstances. That is why we believe in dealing with matters amicably and with as little conflict as possible. This not only helps keep your costs down, but also ensures that you are able to move on harmoniously, particularly where there are children involved.
