We at Pearl Lemon Legal are able to help you through the divorce procedure if your marriage or civil partnership has unfortunately broken down, and you are seeking a divorce.
Couples can now divorce in the UK without placing blame or fault on the other due to the recent passage of the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 on April 6, 2022. A couple can now agreeably declare “irretrievable breakdown” as the only ground for a divorce.
Additionally, since the divorce application is now made online through the HMCTS Court portal, postal delays can be avoided, which could speed up the divorce process. However, more often than not, if there are matrimonial financial issues to be settled, this will cause the divorce to take longer to complete.
If you’re thinking about filing for divorce from your spouse, especially if there are marital funds at stake, it’s crucial that you get legal counsel in the form of an experienced team of divorce solicitors.
This is primarily done to make sure that whatever settlement you, as half of a divorcing couple, come to is fair to you, that you are fully informed about the options available to you, the law that is applied, and the essential Orders the Court can make.
