Divorce, Civil Partnership Dissolution and Breakdown of Relationships

We provide clear and practical advice on managing the breakdown of a relationship whether it be a marriage, civil partnership or cohabiting relationship.

In today’s increasingly international world, many cases involve jurisdiction issues. The financial consequences of divorce and dissolution are quite different in different countries. We can help our clients determine whether England is the most advantageous place to get divorced. Often jurisdictional disputes or cases with offshore assets require urgent court applications and we pride ourselves on our responsive approach in these types of situations.

If a divorce or dissolution in England is the answer, we deal with our cases in as efficient and discreet a manner as possible, advising clients on the process of getting divorced and on the wider financial implications of marriage breakdown.

Sometimes, perhaps for religious, emotional or financial reasons, clients decide that they want to separate but do not wish to divorce. In these cases we help our clients formalise arrangements and protect their financial interests by drafting and negotiating separation agreements and their terms, financial and otherwise.

The end of an unmarried relationship, although it does not have the formal requirements of a divorce or dissolution, can raise issues in relation to property and children, both of which we can help with.
