Each family and separation is unique due to the individuals, lifestyles, and assets involved, we at Stowe begin by instinctively knowing your situation. Your divorce lawyers will next describe the divorce procedure to you in terms you can comprehend, including the options accessible to you, timeframes, and strategies for avoiding issues and delays.
Your divorce procedure officially begins when you file for divorce. You can file for divorce on your own (as the only applicant) or jointly with your ex-spouse (joint applicants). It’s crucial to do this first step right because it can help you save time and money and improve the relationship between the parties. To avoid delays, our divorce lawyers can assist you in filling out and submitting the divorce application.
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 Leamington Spa 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
