How do I start divorce proceedings?


A divorce application is a legal document and will be rejected by the court office if not properly completed which will result in delay.

Tozers' specialist family law solicitors offer a fixed fee for dealing with the divorce.


Starting the Divorce process

Currently there are only two ways to legally end a marriage;

  • No Fault Divorce - This is one of the biggest changes to divorce law in almost 50 years, outdating a lot of previous legislation. No Fault Divorce allows couples to divorce in an amicable manner, without the need for one spouse to blame the other. However, this also means that spouses will not be able to contest the divorce, apart from on grounds such as coercion and fraud. This change also applies to civil partnership dissolution.
  • Divorce - With the intoroduction of No Fault Divorce there is now only one ground for divorce - irretrievable breakdown of the marriage, and you do not need to give reasons or place any blame.

We know that it’s not an easy thing to look at the options and work out which apply to your situation – but with our years’ of experience, we can sensitively talk these through with you and help to bring clarity to what you’re facing.
