Divorce and Relationship Breakdown

The decision to take legal advice in respect of a relationship breakdown is often one of the most difficult decisions one has to make in life.  We understand the impact that a relationship breakdown can have on families, particularly children and we will assist you in considering all of your options from an informed perspective.

When a relationship breaks down, there are often three main issues to deal with: the informal dissolution of the relationship, the financial implications and the arrangements that need to be made for any children in terms of where they live and how often they spend time with each parent.

Whether you have been served with a Divorce Petition or are considering issuing a Petition yourself, you should seek expert legal advice at the earliest opportunity so that we can help you to manage this difficult process in the best way possible in your circumstances.  We can advise you as to the appropriate grounds for divorce and can also offer advice and assistance where you have been served with a Divorce Petition.
