Divorce Solicitor Market Harborough
There is only one way to get a Divorce in England and Wales and that is by one party or both parties to the marriage applying to the Court.
Either party to a marriage can apply for a Divorce and this cannot be contested. All that is required is for that party to provide a short statement confirming that the marriage has broken down irretrievably. There is no longer a requirement to state grounds and parties can apply together through a joint Divorce application.

The Divorce Process
The process begins with a sole or joint application for a Divorce.
There follows a minimum waiting period of 20 weeks between the Divorce application and the Conditional Order. This is followed by a further waiting period of 6 weeks between the Conditional Order and the Final Order.
This means that every Divorce will take a minimum of 7 months.
The timeframe is intended to provide both parties with a period of reflection and to plan for the future. During the 20 weeks between the application and Conditional Order, the parties can address any financial issues or sort out arrangements for the children.
We at Seatons can provide expert advice and assistance with all stages of the Divorce process.
