Whether it's you filing for a divorce or your partner, it can be a heart breaking period to go through alone. Our Preston divorce solicitors at Birleys can offer professional advice to either party.
Divorce proceedings can be instigated by either husband or wife and unfortunately if you don't reply within 21 days, the divorce will continue as if you have agreed. If you do agree to the divorce you must complete the petition form and post it to the court within 8 days.
They are a few complications in filing for a divorce, especially if there are children involved. You will have to have proof for the Family Court that your partner has shown unreasonable behaviour, adultery or you have been subject to desertion.
You must also have been;
Married to your partner for at least a year.
You and your partner must be living in the UK at the time you file for a divorce.
If you are suffering from domestic violence, and have been in an abusive relationship, you may apply for legal aid.
As specialist Preston divorce solicitors we are here to support you and you can either call us on 01772 701 234, email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the form on the right and we'll call you back.
