Advice about your divorce
Before you can begin formal divorce proceedings by completing a divorce petition, you should contact a solicitor for divorce law advice. You can only get divorced under certain circumstances. Some of the reasons for divorce include:
- Unreasonable behaviour by your spouse
- You have been separated from your spouse for more than two years and they agree not to contest the divorce
- You have been separated from your spouse for more than five years
- Adultery by your spouse
Divorce law advice is always a good idea if you are in any doubt about the legality of the divorce you are seeking. It is important that the divorce petition you complete contains accurate information or this could slow down your divorce proceedings.
A solicitor can help with divorce law advice particularly if your spouse does not agree to the divorce you are seeking. Your solicitor can look at your particular case and give you advice on the action you can take. Also, advice on divorce law is absolutely essential if you have children to consider as part of your divorce.
Advice is essential from a financial point of view. It is a myth that all assets are automatically divided on a 50:50 basis. Your solicitor can give you more information about how the assets in your marriage should be handled and ultimately divided. And if your divorce comes before a judge, divorce law advice from your solicitor on how to handle your court appearance is vitally important to the successful outcome of your case.
