Family Law Solicitors Chester - Divorce

If you’re navigating the complexities of a marital or civil partnership breakdown and are contemplating divorce, our experts at Berkson Family Law, specializing in family law in Chester, are prepared to guide you through this process.

Since the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 came into effect on April 6, 2022, it has become possible for couples to file for divorce without assigning blame. This act allows ‘irretrievable breakdown’ to be the sole reason for divorce, fostering a more harmonious procedure.

The divorce application process has been made more efficient with the introduction of the online system through the HMCTS Court portal. This advancement not only reduces postal delays but can also accelerate the overall divorce process. However, the resolution of matrimonial finances might extend the timeline.

Obtaining legal advice is essential if you’re considering initiating divorce proceedings, particularly when there are matrimonial finances to be settled. At Berkson Family Law, experts in family law in Chester, we offer comprehensive guidance on your available options, the relevant laws, possible court orders, and ensuring that any agreement is equitable and formalized in a legally enforceable Consent Order. If consensus on matrimonial finances is unattainable, court applications remain an option. However, our aim at Berkson Family Law is to settle cases outside of court whenever possible, to keep legal expenses to a minimum.

Our solicitors, proficient in family law in Chester, are dedicated to managing divorce and matrimonial finance cases in a manner that is as amicable, constructive, and cost-effective as possible. For advice on any divorce-related matters, please don’t hesitate to contact our office, where a member of our team will be eager to assist you.
