Family Law Reviews
I used this company for matrimonial issues. I found them knowledgeable and helpful. They helped me to reduce legal costs by coaching me to do some of the process myself. I am satisfied with the outcome achieved and I would recommend the company.
Provided really good advice and dealt with every one of my concerns in a patient and methodical manner. Thank you so much, you made a difficult situation so much more bearable by being in my corner throughout.
So helpful and reassuring. Very happy with their advice, it could not have helped me any better.

The divorce process has 3 key parts:
(a) The filing of the application for divorce
(b) The application for conditional order
(c) The application for final order
Currently, the divorce process takes around 6 months. This is because the court requires a 20-week waiting period between filing the application and applying for a conditional order and a further 6 weeks between the pronouncement of the conditional order and the final order has been applied for.
