Deciding to separate and then divorce can be very distressing, particularly when there are children involved. We aim to bring clarity and support during this difficult time so you can focus on the future.

Our clients' welfare is our top priority. We will always look to find a resolution that meets your needs and provides the best outcome for you and your family. A divorce will impact every area of your life, so it can be hard to know if you are doing the right thing. The family law team at Pearcelegal will be here with an understanding ear and helpful advice to help you forge your path forward.

If you choose to separate before divorcing, we can help create separation agreements to protect your interests. A financial agreement will sever financial ties while ensuring dependents are cared for sufficiently.

Frequently asked questions

How will our assets be divided?

It is important to remember that the reasons for your divorce will have no impact on the financial split that a Court may make. The starting point for the Court is to bring about a fair division of matrimonial assets taking into account the means of the husband and wife, but most importantly, the welfare of any children of the marriage under 18. We will be able to advise you further in this respect during our free initial consultation appointment.

Will I have to go to Court?

It is very rare that the parties have to attend Court in Divorce Proceedings. However if you and your ex-partner cannot agree a fair and reasonable financial settlement between you then you may need the assistance of the Court in this respect. If so, then there will be Court hearings to attend.

Will we have to sell the family home?

Whether or not you have to sell the family home will depend on the facts personal to your situation and the extent of the overall matrimonial finances. However this option can be discussed in more detail during a free initial consultation.

How long does it take to get divorced?

At Pearcelegal we issue all new Divorce Petitions online. This is a much speedier process than having to rely on paperwork and post. However the length of time it will take to get divorced will depend on various factors, such as whether or not both parties consent to the divorce. We would also strongly recommend that your divorce is not finalised until an agreement has been reached in respect of the matrimonial finances.
