Questions our Colliers Wood divorce solicitors are frequently asked

You can start a divorce by preparing a divorce application online along with your marriage certificate and the correct court fee. The divorce application needs to be completed accurately.

Firstly, don’t panic! You will have received a copy of the divorce application and instructions to register with the Court online portal so that you can respond to the divorce application which has to be completed within a certain period of time. Before completing the response it is important that you obtain legal advice and understand what the next steps in the divorce will be.

You may have taken the decision not to divorce based on religious or cultural reasons.  If so, you can apply for a Judicial Separation through a procedure similar to a divorce. Obtaining a Judicial Separation means that you are no longer obliged to live together however does not ultimately bring the marriage to an end. You will still also be able to request the Court to approve a financial settlement that you may reach with your spouse.

If you own the family home together with your spouse or partner you cannot stop them from entering the property except by getting a court order. The locks on the property should not be changed and if they are, you must provide them with a key. However, if you are being subjected to violent or aggressive behaviour from your partner or spouse you may be in a position to apply to the Court for an Order to remove them from the property.

This is unlikely to have an impact on financial issues, however it is important that you seek legal advice before taking such steps.  By moving out of the property you may no longer have access to your personal belongings e.g.  important financial documents and there may be a risk that your spouse may not cooperate which will prolong the divorce.

    Family lawyers for a quickie divorce in Colliers Wood

    Divorce is invariably a challenging journey, often accompanied by significant expenses, prompting many couples to consider a 'quickie divorce' or 'quick divorce.' This term denotes a divorce process conducted online without professional guidance but offered at a low fixed fee.

    While some online firms may provide limited advice when needed, it is important to note that qualified or regulated professionals do not dispense such advice. The divorce process has been made simpler by implementing the no-fault divorce.

    The implementation of no-fault divorces in April 2022, under The Divorce, Dissolution, and Separation Act 2020, allows couples to jointly apply without assigning blame.

    Introducing no-fault divorce in the UK brings numerous advantages for couples ending their marriage. With no blame to attribute, the process becomes uncontested, reducing the chance of prolonged legal battles. This fosters cooperation, potentially leading to quicker resolutions and lower expenses.

    A no-fault divorce also minimises stress on children, creating a more harmonious environment and lessening the negative impact of parental conflict on their well-being. Though not inherently swift, the process typically allows couples to finalise arrangements within approximately six months. Please see our FAQs.
