Questions our Wimbledon 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.

    Can your family lawyers organise a quickie divorce in Wimbledon?

    While the term 'quickie divorce' may be misleading, the implementation of no-fault divorces in April 2022, according to The Divorce, Dissolution, and Separation Act 2020, enables couples to apply jointly without attributing blame to either party.

    The introduction of no-fault divorce in the UK brings several benefits for couples seeking to end their marriage. A no-fault divorce cannot be contested, eliminating the need to assign blame and reducing the likelihood of lengthy legal battles. This encourages more cooperative decision-making, as couples can approach the process without acrimony, potentially leading to faster resolutions and reduced costs.

    A no-fault divorce is less stressful for children, fostering a more amicable atmosphere and minimising the negative impact of parental conflict on their well-being. While not inherently quick, the process of no-fault divorce couples to discuss practicalities and finalise arrangements within approximately six months.
