A divorce or dissolution is the formal ending of a marriage or civil partnership on the basis that it has broken down irretrievably. There is a specific process that is required to be taken 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 come to an agreement that you are happy with.
At Watson Woodhouse, we are proud to have one of the most highly trained team of divorce solicitors.
We understand that when a relationship breakdowns it is a difficult and traumatic time for everyone involved. We will ensure that your situation is handled with compassion, respect and professionalism in order to reach the settlement you desire.
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. This will then be submitted to the court for the judge’s approval.
If an agreement cannot be made, our solicitors 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.
