Divorce & separation explained

What are the grounds for divorce?

From 6 April 2022 divorce law has now changed where there is no longer 'blame' attached. It is possible to divorce on a joint basis. There is an application process designed to make procedure more straightforward. Please contact us for more information. 

How long does a divorce take?

Given the recent changes to divorce law, please contact us so we can provide you with more information. 

Will I have to go to court?

Unless the divorce is defended (which will be even more difficult under the new procedure), it is unlikely that you will need to go to court.

I've received a Petition for divorce: what do I do?

If you do receive a divorce petition, please contact us so that we can advise you accordingly. 

When dealing with the breakdown of your marriage it is imperative that you seek independent legal advice. Our family lawyers at BakerLaw can deal with your divorce from start to finish and also advise you about any potential financial claims and other related issues.
