Frequently Asked Questions

Are all assets divided 50/50 after a divorce?

Although equality is considered a good starting point, in most marriages the end result will depend upon a number of factors, including the length of the marriage; the income of both parties and whether an equal split of capital (usually the value of the family home) will be enough for both parties to afford a new home, in particular the parent who is the main carer for the children.

Does my partner / spouse need to know I’ve been to see you?

No, your partner does not need to know that you have contacted us for legal advice. Any meetings/contact we have are strictly confidential between you and us.

Is there a minimum time you have to be married for before you can get a divorce?

Yes, you need to be married for one year before you can divorce. You can obtain a judicial separation at any time after marriage, however, this does not end a marriage.

How much will a divorce cost?

Without knowing more about your specific circumstances, this is a difficult question to answer.  An estimate of costs will be much more accurate once we have had our initial conversation.
