More about our Birmingham family law solicitors

  • Financial divorce settlements and protecting your future 

    We have a strong success rate in resolving financial disputes, whether you are looking to protect your wealth or secure your financial position for the future. Our divorce lawyers work hand-in-hand with our in-house accounting team to provide clients with a detailed overview of their family’s finances quickly, helping you to secure a fair settlement. Our Birmingham divorce lawyers do this for clients on a whole range of complex financial matters involving the family home, pensions, trusts, shareholdings and other business interests.

  • Child arrangements and maintenance issues

    Our Birmingham team of family law solicitors have extensive experience in contact and residence, relocation and child maintenance matters.  Whether during or after divorce, these matters can be emotionally challenging for parents and children, who are already vulnerable due to the separation of parents.  Your solicitor will help you to find the best way forward, minimizing stress and anxiety for all involved.  Managing Partner Rebecca Calden Storr is one of a handful of family lawyers in the UK to have resolved a protracted Child case via private arbitration – i.e. without going to court.

  • Starting the divorce process with Stowe

    Every family and separation is unique because of the people, lifestyles and assets involved – so, at Stowe, we start by understanding your situation implicitly. Your divorce lawyers will then explain the divorce process in language you will understand, including options available to you, along with timescales and how to avoid delays and complications.

    A divorce application marks the start of your divorce process. You can apply for a divorce by yourself (sole applicant) or make a joint application with your ex-spouse (joint applicants). Getting this early part right is important as it can help to save you time and money; it can also help to make the process more amicable. Our divorce lawyers can support you in completing and submitting the divorce application to prevent delays.

  • Responding to a divorce petition

    If your spouse has applied for a divorce, you will be served with a divorce application. Responding correctly requires an understanding of the legal terminology used, which is confusing to most. Our Birmingham divorce lawyers can help you to respond to a divorce application while preparing you to get the best possible outcome for you, and for your family.

     

  • What are the grounds for divorce?

    England and Wales operate a no-fault based divorce system which means that you do not have to provide a reason for the breakdown of your marriage, just a statement that your marriage has irretrievably broken down.

  • How much will my divorce cost?

    The cost of a divorce includes the court fee (currently £593) and the costs of the solicitors who assist the parties with the divorce process if they are instructed.

    The person applying for the divorce (the applicant) will be responsible for covering the court fee. If the application is a joint one, applicant 1 will pay the court fee. 

    It is important to note that costs relating to the divorce are different from those incurred in negotiating a financial settlement and/or child arrangements.

  • From what age can a child decide which parent to live with?

    A child can decide where they want to live from the age of 16, unless there is a residence order specifying their residence until the age of 18.

  • How long will my divorce take?

    In England & Wales, for straightforward divorce cases, the process can take between 6 – 8 months. On average, the whole process takes approximately one year. Longer than 12 months is common for cases where there are drawn out disagreements on child and financial matters. It is impossible to predict exactly how long a divorce will take, though a good a divorce lawyer will help give you an educated estimate.
