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.
You’ll receive notice of the divorce application if your spouse has filed for divorce. To properly respond, one must comprehend the often-confusing legal jargon that is utilised. Our Worcester divorce lawyers can assist you in responding to a divorce application while putting you in the best position to obtain the most favourable results for you and your family.
England and Wales have a no-fault divorce system, which means you do not have to present a reason for the breakdown of your marriage, simply a statement that your marriage has irretrievably broken down.
The cost of a divorce includes the court fee, which is presently £593, as well as the fees for the solicitors who, if hired, will help the parties through the divorce procedure.
The fee for filing for divorce with the court will be paid for by the “applicant,” which is the person initiating the divorce proceeding. If there is more than one applicant, applicant 1 will cover the court fee.
It is necessary to keep in mind that divorce-related expenses are distinct from those incurred during the negotiations of a financial settlement and/or child custody arrangements.
At 16, a child can choose where they want to live, unless there is a court order that asserts where they must live until they are 18.
For simple divorce proceedings in England & Wales, the procedure can take six to eight months. The entire procedure typically takes one year. When there are protracted disputes regarding children and finances, it is typical for cases to last more than a year. Although it is impossible to forecast with accuracy how long a divorce will take, a competent divorce lawyer can provide you with an educated estimate.
