We offer a full range of services in divorce & family matters

At Specters, our experienced team of solicitors will provide you with first-class service and advice tailored to your situation. When looking to commence divorce proceedings, you must first be sure that you have grounds for divorce.

These grounds include:

  • Adultery
  • Desertion
  • Separation of two years (divorce should be sought with the consent of the other party)
  • Separation of five years (no consent of the other party is required)
  • Unreasonable behaviour

If any of these grounds apply, a petition for divorce can be issued. If you are unsure whether you want to go through with your divorce, there may be other options open to you. We will, of course, discuss these options with you so that you can make an informed decision.

It is important that you receive the correct legal advice early on to decide on the best approach for you. This relates to key issues such as divorce, custody of children, financial arrangements, pension arrangements and inheritance after divorce. There may be an international element to your divorce such as property abroad or your spouse may be living out of the jurisdiction. There may also be company assets or trusts that need to be resolved.

Whatever your situation, our team can help you by offering detailed knowledge and skill to ensure that your rights are protected.

If you have questions about your options, we are able to offer you a free initial 30-minute consultation in person, and we fix our rate per 30 minutes at £50 thereafter. You can free-call us on 0300 303 3629 to arrange this initial consultation, or alternatively you can complete our enquiry form.


Where Divorce & Family matters are concerned, we specialise in the following areas:

  • Annulment

  • Children
  • Civil Partnership
  • Cohabitation Disputes
  • Contested Divorce
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Financial Settlement

We expect the divorce process to take between 3 and 6 months, depending on various issues such as whether the other party consents. Delays may be incurred if the other party cannot be traced, is out of the jurisdiction or contests the divorce.

We are able to provide a fixed fee for uncontested divorces of £700 plus VAT. If your divorce is uncontested, we will move swiftly to conclude matters.
