Divorce is the formal process that brings your marriage to an end. A judicial separation, which is a legal separation obtained through the courts, does not end your marriage but it does give you the right to ask for a financial settlement.
From our two offices in Lichfield and Cannock, Staffordshire, our divorce lawyers can advise you if you have the grounds to divorce your spouse and guide you through the process.
Where you and your spouse are willing to try and resolve matters amicably between you, we can help you agree arrangements concerning your children, your property and your finances through collaborative law, an approach which has many advantages.
We can also refer you to a trained mediator, but if it is not possible to agree arrangements amicably then our divorce solicitors can help you negotiate an agreement or, in some cases, commence court proceedings to help you resolve outstanding issues. Our Staffordshire family solicitors will keep you fully appraised as to time scale and cost implications of any agreed course of action.
Particular sensitivity is required where domestic abuse is a factor in relationship breakdown, and we can take a number of legal steps to protect you and your children.Enquire about this service
