Divorce and Civil Partnership Dissolution

Divorce and Civil Partnership

NGA Solicitors Family Services

Divorce or separation can be a time of conflict and heartache.

NGA Solicitors are experienced and sympathetic to the individual needs of our client. As well as advice on divorce and civil partnership procedure we also offer alternative processes such as mediation and collaboration which may save time and money for clients without the need for formal court proceedings.

It is important at an early stage to get legal advice from a Solicitor. We at NGA offer a fixed fee first meeting limited to £90 including VAT and we do not look at the clock, your time is ours. The process for divorce is essentially the same for civil partnership dissolution. The only exception is adultery which is a legal term specific to divorce and not civil partners who are separating. The minimum eligibility to petition for divorce is to be married for twelve months.

If you want to obtain a divorce and/or civil partnership dissolution you have to prove the marriage has broken down irretrievably and there are five facts that you can use in support:-

  • Adultery (Divorce only)
  • Unreasonable Behaviour
  • Desertion for at least two years
  • Living apart for two years with consent
  • Living apart for five years, no consent required.

We now offer a fixed fee divorce service from only £399 + VAT (terms and conditions apply).
