How we can help prevent delays in the divorce process

Key ways our solicitors and lawyers can help keep your divorce from being delayed include:

  • Ensuring there are no mistakes in your divorce petition that could cause it to be rejected by a court, forcing you to reapply with a new petition
  • Making sure you cite sufficient reasons for the divorce to convince a court that your marriage has truly broken down beyond recovery
  • Helping you to choose reasons for the divorce that your spouse is unlikely to object to, minimising the risk of their choosing to defend the divorce
