Divorce

We understand that going through a divorce can be a stressful time. Here at GoodyBurrett Solicitors, we have a friendly team of solicitors in our Colchester office.  We are here to lend a friendly and helping hand. Getting legal advice on divorce will help you understand your legal position. Our skilled family solicitors will assist you with all aspects of your divorce proceedings and endeavour to get you the best result.

There is only one ground for divorce and that is that the marriage has irretrievably broken down. The person who starts the divorce proceedings is called the Petitioner and their spouse is called the Respondent. The Petitioner will need to show to the Court that the marriage has irretrievably broken down and this is done by proving one of five ‘facts.

Often the divorce procedure is straightforward and the procedure for a simple undefended divorce can be over quite quickly.

If you have any questions about the costs or process of your divorce, please get in touch with our team of family lawyers based in our Colchester office.
