Taking care of your legal needs in cases of divorce

If your marriage has irrevocably broken down and you have decided to divorce from your partner, Ormrods Solicitors & Advocates can support you sensitively through the legal process.

We recognise that this is a difficult time for you and your immediate family, so it’s crucial that your divorce proceedings go smoothly and with minimum distress.

Ormrods can ensure that your divorce petition is properly prepared to reflect the correct area of law.  Under the legal system in England & Wales, there are five grounds for divorce:

  • Adultery
  • Separation for a period of 2 years (with the agreement of the other party)
  • Separation for a period of 5 years
  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • Desertion.

If your divorce petition is not properly prepared, it can be rejected by the court.  That would cost time and money, as well as adding to the stress of what are already emotional circumstances.  We make it our aim to ensure that the court process is as smooth and painless for you as possible.

Fixed fees

The amount you might have to pay in legal fees for your divorce can often add to your worries. If you are thinking of pursuing an undefended divorce, we can do all this work for a fixed fee so that you know what you will have to pay from the outset.

Ormrods can prepare the papers and provide help and advice throughout the entire process, dealing with your spouse, their solicitor and the court.

To discuss your divorce proceedings or any other family matters in complete confidence, including fixed fee cases, please contact Michael Penny on 01253 850777 or by email mike.penny@ormrods.co.uk
