Quick divorce solicitors in Worcester Park, KT4
We offer a flexible and accessible approach to divorce. Many people ask us how long a divorce will take, which is a tricky question to answer because each case turns on its own facts and some divorces take longer than others. We will listen to you and discuss your options, let you know your rights and where you stand, explain your ex-partner's rights and give you expert advice about your circumstances.
Separating couples can now get a divorce or civil partnership dissolution without having to blame each other for the breakdown of the relationship. As of April 6, 2022, the law on divorce changes and we now have a ‘no-fault divorce’, this means that couples no longer have to rely on one of the five facts to prove the only ground for a divorce, which is the irretrievable breakdown of the relationship. Those five facts used to be:
- Unreasonable behaviour
- Two years separation (with consent)
- Five years’ separation
Instead, the “no-fault” divorce offers a more constructive approach to separation, it aims to take the blame out of divorce. In fact, it is even possible to make a joint application for divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership now (although for various reasons we would advise against this).
Whilst the press have made much of there now being a “no fault divorce” you may be surprised to note that in most cases the bad behaviour of one party in fact had no bearing on how finances were dealt with or the children so in reality we already had a “no fault” divorce system. However, it is no longer necessary to apportion blame in order to apply for a divorce without having to wait at least two years.
