Our divorce and separation services in Rugby

Divorce proceedings

Thanks to the implementation of 'no-fault' divorce, the process of applying for a divorce or responding to an application has become relatively straightforward. Now, there is no need to provide a reason for the marriage breakdown, and opposing a divorce initiated by one's spouse is only possible under exceptional circumstances.

Removing the need for individuals who wish to obtain a divorce to have to establish fault has had multiple practical benefits. Firstly, it has vastly reduced the time and cost that is normally involved in obtaining a divorce, as couples no longer are required to gather evidence or engage in emotionally taxing legal battles over who takes the blame for the breakdown of their marriage. As a result, the overall legal process has become much more efficient and less taxing for all parties involved.

Despite this, having an experienced professional to guide you through the process and offer personalised divorce advice is still highly recommended. Our specialist divorce solicitors in Rugby are more than willing to provide their expertise, ensuring that all necessary steps are efficiently completed, whilst completing any complex legal documentation that may be required of you.

Division of finances

When it comes to dividing finances, it is often the most complex process during a divorce or separation due to the outcome determining the financial future of yourself and those close to you.

Ideally, couples would all agree on how they would divide their finances amicably. Unfortunately, this is not always realistic, and tensions can quickly rise during this process. No matter what your circumstances are, our divorce solicitors in Rugby will be on hand to ensure that your finances are protected and to secure you the best possible outcome. We will work diligently to ensure that you receive the money that you are entitled to.

Child law

In cases where disagreements arise regarding children's arrangements, there are separate options available, distinct from the divorce proceedings. Ideally, child arrangements should be mutually agreed upon through mediation with the cooperation of both parents, but unfortunately, this may not always be feasible.

Our divorce solicitors in Rugby understand however, that this may not always be possible.

If mediation fails to resolve the dispute, a separate application can be made to the court for a Child Arrangements Order. Our divorce solicitors in Rugby can provide assistance in both amicably negotiating child arrangements and guiding you through the court application process if necessary. Our services include both facilitating productive negotiations with child arrangements and providing representation in court if needed. Our absolute priority is ensuring the well-being of your children and securing a positive outcome.

International divorce

Our divorce solicitors in Rugby frequently assist clients who require guidance on divorce cases that involve international aspects. This could entail situations where the couple got married in England or Wales but currently reside abroad, or where one or both individuals possess international assets.

Additionally, international issues may arise concerning children, particularly when one parent plans to relocate overseas. Rest assured, our divorce solicitors are highly experienced in handling all matters pertaining to international divorce.

With their expertise, they can adeptly navigate even the most complex and challenging situations you may encounter.

Divorce counselling

During this challenging period, many individuals experience a wide range of emotions, including fear, pain, and anger. Our team in Rugby have received specialised training to support you through these difficult feelings. We have a qualified counsellor readily available to assist you in processing and understanding these emotions, providing a source of guidance and comfort during this distressing time.
