Divorce and Civil Partnership Dissolution

Obtaining a divorce or dissolution (in cases of civil partnership) is fairly straightforward, however the process is often complicated when there is a disagreement over financial settlements, property and children.

It is for the above reason that you should seek legal advice at an early stage from a solicitor specialising in family and divorce law. The sooner you get legal advice, the more likely it is you will be able to achieve an amicable divorce that gets you and your loved ones what you need for a positive future.

At Rowlinsons Solicitors, we have vast experience in dealing with divorce and civil partnership dissolution under a wide range of circumstances. Our friendly and experienced team will be with you every step of the way, cutting through the legal jargon so that you know exactly what is happening in a language you understand.

Wherever possible, we will help you work through your separation in an amicable way which will hopefully avoid the requirement for court proceedings. Our Head of Department is trained in mediation and collaborative law which means we are committed to resolving family disputes in a constructive, non confrontational manner. This can help save time and money, reduce stress and potentially enables you to keep your affairs private as opposed to court proceedings which are more public. If court proceedings are necessary, then we also have considerable experience of the same and will guide you through the process with a view to achieving a positive result.  

We understand that it is important for most families to have affordable options when it comes to separations, so we offer different pricing structures that are tailored to your individual needs.

Our divorce and civil partnership dissolution services

Divorce & dissolution proceedings

The legal process of getting divorced or dissolving a civil partnership is generally relatively straightforward, as long as both of you agree to end your relationship. However, there are a number of forms to complete and processes to work through and it is important that this is done correctly as it can make a big difference to how quickly and smoothly your divorce progresses. Our team can assist with submitting and responding to a divorce petition as well as applying for a decree nisi and decree absolute.

Financial settlements

Separating your finances is often the most legally complex part of a separation, so it is essential to get help from experienced specialists in such matters. Our team can guide you through negotiating a settlement, including using collaborative law or mediation, but we can also advise you on achieving a settlement through the courts where required. We will explain your financial entitlements and help negotiate a divorce settlement which takes into consideration your family home, pension rights and all other assets.

Arrangements for children

If you have children, deciding where they will live and what contact each of you will have with them is often the most emotionally challenging matter to resolve. Our team are particularly sensitive to the impact on children and their welfare is very much at the forefront of our minds. Find out more about how we can help with disputes involving children.
