Going through a separation is never pleasant, but our Middlesbrough divorce solicitors are on hand to make the legal side of the matter run smoothly.
The first thing you should be aware of is that not everybody can apply for a divorce. To be eligible, your marriage must have lasted at least a year, and you must be able to prove that the relationship has broken down for one of the following reasons;
Desertion - your partner has deserted you without your consent and without good reason
Adultery - your partner has committed adultery and you feel unable to remain in the relationship
Domestic violence - there is physical or emotional violence in the marriage
You have lived apart for two years or more and both agree to the divorce
Living apart for five years is usually grounds for divorce, even if your partner disagrees with it
Whatever your situation it is important to remember that you are not alone. Our lawyers have a wealth of experience in this area of law and regularly handle divorce cases involving domestic violence or adultery, so there is no need for embarrassment.
Applying for a divorce is stressful at the best of times, so our solicitors always try to settle matters amicably. Our family law specialists are experts in mediation, and in the majority of cases we can come to an amicable arrangement.
On those occasions where this is not possible, our lawyers will do their utmost to protect your interests at court.
As well as offering fixed fee divorce packages, we can also assist with the following family law matters;
