Our divorce services in Banbury

Divorce proceedings

Due to the introduction of ‘no-fault’ divorce, applying for a divorce or giving a response to an application is now much simpler as a ‘reason’ for the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage does not need to be provided. It is also no longer possible to oppose a divorce application in all but the most unique situations.

The introduction of ‘no-fault’ divorce has streamlined the process of dissolving marriages in multiple ways. Individuals are no longer required to provide reasons or assign blame for the breakdown of their marriage when applying for a divorce or responding to an application.

Whether you are making a sole application, joint application with your former spouse, or are responding to an application, our divorce solicitors in Banbury can guide you through the entire process, making sure that all the relevant documentation is completed and there are no delays to the process.

Division of finances

One of the more difficult aspects of a divorce is often the division of finances, as the outcome will be critical to your present and future financial security.

Reaching an amicable agreement on the division of finances is often possible, though this requires both parties to be willing to cooperate with one another to achieve a suitable resolution.

However, the reality is often more complex, particularly when significant assets are involved. Regardless of the circumstances, our divorce solicitors in Banbury are well-prepared to safeguard your financial rights and work diligently to secure the most favourable outcome for you. Whether it requires negotiation or a more assertive approach, we are committed to advocating for your best interests throughout the process.

Child law

During divorce cases where disagreements arise concerning child arrangements, there are alternative options available, which are handled separately from the divorce proceedings. The ideal scenario involves parents reaching amicable child arrangements through mediation with mutual cooperation.

However, at Brethertons, we understand that this may not always be feasible. If mediation fails to resolve the dispute, a separate application can be made to the court for a Child Arrangements Order.

Our services encompass both facilitating amicable negotiations for child arrangements and providing assistance with court applications if necessary. Our Banbury divorce solicitors’ biggest priority is to ensure that the best interests of the children are upheld and that suitable arrangements are established for their well-being and happiness.

International divorce

We now live in a world where international travel and relationships are increasingly accessible. However, when it comes to divorce, the international aspect can make things increasingly difficult.

We often handle cases for clients who require extra support due to their being an internal element to their divorce. This could be a case where a couple originally were married in England or Wales, but then one or both partners live abroad.

We have also handled situations where either separating partner has international assets. These issues can also pertain to issues relating to children, especially where relocation is concerned.

Our solicitors in Banbury are well versed in international divorce matters and will be there for you throughout the whole process.

Divorce counselling

We understand that during a divorce, individuals experience a wide array of emotions. As a result, we have a qualified counsellor within our team to support you during this difficult time. Our experienced and compassionate counsellor is well-versed in handling the emotional complexities associated with divorce, offering a safe and understanding space for clients to express their feelings, fears, and concerns.

They work closely with our legal team to ensure a holistic approach to divorce proceedings, taking care of both the legal and emotional aspects of the process. With our in-house divorce counselling service, we strive to provide comprehensive emotional support to our clients, empowering them to make informed decisions while promoting emotional healing and growth.
