When people seek help with divorce, they need a solicitor who is sensitive to the emotional effects of separation and who will act in a sympathetic yet positive manner…

The decision to separate from your partner or to end a marriage is not an easy one, especially where there are children and financial responsibilities involved. At JC Solicitors, we aim to reduce the emotional effects of divorce and separation and the impact this has on you and your family. We recognise that when people seek help with divorce, they need a lawyer who is understanding and thoughtful, and provides a safe space to discuss matters in a sympathetic yet positive way.

Since the introduction of the “no fault divorce” in April 2022, there is no need to place the blame on each other or provide a reason for the divorce, other than the marriage has broken down. This allows couples to remain amicable and to move forward with your separation in a positive manner.

Difficulties can arise when resolving any related practical issues, such as division of financial assets and arrangements regarding children. We understand that it can be difficult to know how to deal with these aspects of a relationship breakdown. It is our aim to limit both the emotional turmoil and the legal costs by encouraging separating couples to reach agreement on the practical issues wherever possible. This can be done through a range of out of court options, including mediation and collaborative law.
