Guiding you through the Divorce Process.

Divorces can often seem overwhelming and complex. And while they certainly can be, they are also a legal process with clear, defined steps. With decades of experience, our divorce lawyers provide clear, focused advice to ensure our clients successfully navigate the process and find a constructive solution.

Always on your side

No two divorces are the same, which is why we base our legal advice on you, your situation and your goals. We will then create a clear, tailored framework for you; one that proactively moves through the divorce process towards a timely and effective resolution. With a breadth of experience and skills, we can explore a wide range of options in order to avoid costly and damaging litigation. 

Divorce involves making significant and often difficult decisions. We will help you understand the divorce process step-by-step, and can advise you in relation to other matters that will need to be agreed as part of that process. This will ensure you understand the wider implications of your choices, so that you always have a clear view of your options. Even if something unexpected occurs, you can be sure that not only have we likely seen it before, but that it can be managed appropriately. 

Expertise tailored to your circumstances

We don’t believe in working in isolation, so you will benefit from the expertise, insight and skills of the entire team at Blaser Mills Law. Where appropriate, we create multi-disciplinary teams so that you get expert legal advice, service and value at every stage. This allows us to utilise decades of experience dealing with a wide range of clients and divorces, including collaborative and mediation services to help you find the right solution and avoid litigation where possible and appropriate. 

We are experienced when it comes to international and cross-border divorce processes as well as UK divorce. A number of our divorce lawyers are individually ranked in Chambers and Partners and are also members of Resolution and the Law Society’s Family Law Accreditation Scheme. 

How to start the divorce process

Before you begin the legal process of ending your marriage, it’s important to understand what you will need to do. For example, we can make sure the English Courts have jurisdiction to deal with the divorce and can advise you if you married abroad. You will have to make sure your case can proceed on one of the five facts that prove you have grounds for divorce – adultery, behaviour, desertion, you’ve lived apart for two years or have been separated for five. We can help you show that your marriage has irretrievably broken down. From here, our divorce lawyers will guide you through the process and ensure you are treated fairly, and that you get the most constructive result possible.

Understanding the divorce process  

Just as every relationship is unique, our extensive experience shows that every divorce is different. You may be able to end your marriage without a Court hearing if you and your ex-partner can mutually agree on a path forward. But if one of you doesn’t agree to the divorce, the process is likely to take more time and cost more. 

The majority of divorces in England that are mutually agreed take between 6-9 months, but we often deal with more complex divorces involving high-net-worth individuals such as business owners, international clients, sports professionals or families who have inherited their wealth. They tend to involve issues around finances and property, and they can sometimes take longer. We will ensure we maintain clear and open dialogue with you as your divorce progresses, so that you always know what to expect.
