A divorce is the process of dissolving (ending) your marriage. In order to divorce in England and Wales the marriage has to have irretrievably broken down i.e. there is no hope of reconciliation.
The person who starts the divorce is known as the Applicant and their spouse is the Respondent.
There is no longer a need to show fault as a reason for the divorce. The applicant or the applicant and respondent together in a joint application simply states the marriage has irretrievably broken down.
As part of our commitment to making the process easier for our clients we offer face to face or Zoom appointments outside office hours and at weekends as we understand that not everyone can able to take time off to see us during the working day.
