Unfortunately, not every marriage works out the way you imagined. A recent study by the BBC revealed that 2.87 million people were living in a “distressed” relationship. In the whole of the EU the amount of divorces is on the rise with 1.8 of every 1000 people been involved in a divorce. In Britain alone, 2.8 of every 1000 people have been involved in a divorce. Giving Britain the highest divorce rate in the EU. If you are wanting a divorce, our Divorce Solicitors London team will guarantee a healthy outcome for both sides of your relationship.

Craig Solicitors fully understand that this time can be hard. However, our Divorce Solicitors London team will be able to give you as much support as required. No matter the dilemmas that you might be facing. This is so the procedure can be as quick and easy as possible for you.

How Can We Help?

Firstly, you have to be in a legally recognised marriage for over a year to be able to get a divorce in the UK.

When you decide to get a divorce you probably start worrying about your future finances, your home and your children. Nevertheless, our Divorce Solicitors London team will be able to help you with all of the problems that you might be facing.

Under UK law there is only one ‘fact’ that a divorce can be based upon and that is the agreement that the marriage has “irretrievably broken down”. Once established between the couple, one of five ‘grounds’ for divorce must be relied upon.

These grounds are:

  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • Desertion
  • 2 years separation with consent
  • 5 years separation

A fee will be put forward once you have established the grounds and a divorce petition will be submitted to the relevant Court. Your petition has to be acknowledged by your spouse or served on them before you can apply for a decree nisi and eventually a decree absolute. After this has been done, your marriage will officially be over.
