What To Expect

Whether you are based in Cheshire or Manchester, our Altrincham office is easy to reach. Alternatively, if it’s more convenient for you, your appointment can be held via video call.

We will collect details about your unique situation prior to your appointment, so that your solicitor has all of the background information in advance and you can get maximum benefit from your time with them.

Your solicitor will discuss with you the options available to you, so that all of your questions are answered and you have everything you need to make decisions on the next steps to take.

We don’t offer free appointments because at these types of appointments people only receive broad, non-specific guidance. Whereas by engaging you as a client, we can give you detailed, tailored advice on your legal and financial position to help you move forward.

You can book your appointment by using our online appointment request system. Alternatively, you can email or phone us on 0161 929 8494.

Understanding Divorce

The Impact Of Divorce

Going through a divorce can be an emotionally demanding experience, which impacts your children and wider family, along with every aspect of your life, including finances and business interests.

Grounds For Divorce

The divorce laws in England and Wales have changed to remove the apportioning of blame when a relationship breaks down. The only ground for divorce now is that the marriage has irretrievably broken down.

In addition, to get divorced in England or Wales:

  • You must have been married for more than one year
  • The marriage must have permanently broken down
  • The marriage must be legally recognised in the UK 
  • You, or your husband or wife, must be a UK permanent resident
