A divorce or dissolution is the formal ending of a marriage or civil partnership on the basis that it has broken down irretrievably. A specific process is required to be taken in order to have your marriage or civil partnership legally ended. It will only become official that a couple has separated on the decree absolute or final dissolution order.
Your divorce or dissolution may also become more complicated where there are disagreements involving the division of assets. Our lawyers can advise and assist in this situation in order to reach the best settlement for you.
At Watson Woodhouse, we are proud to have one of the most highly trained team of divorce solicitors.
We understand that when a relationship breaks down it is a difficult and traumatic time for everyone involved. At Watson Woodhouse, we will handle your situation with compassion, respect and professionalism, so that we are with you every step of the way.
Where there is a dispute over money, it is possible to resolve the issue through negotiation rather than needing to go to court. We can refer you to mediation and then prepare a draft Court Order to reflect what has been agreed. We will then submit this to the court for the judge’s approval.
If an agreement cannot be made, we can assist in applying to the court for a Financial Order. We can advise and represent you if court proceedings prove necessary in the circumstances.
