What do you do if you can't stand each other (apart from murder)?
How do you get out of this mess?
What if there's another woman/man/both???

Unfortunately relationships do not always work out. High hopes all too frequently end up in the divorce courts these days, and you need to know where you stand. We can advise you whether or not you have grounds for divorce or being divorced, and how to go about getting divorced.

Who will get the children?
Is your partner stopping you from seeing the kids?
How do you get Child Support?

We can explain to you the concept of residence and contact orders. We can help you pursue your application through the mediation or the Courts as necessary. We can tell you what to expect to pay/receive through the Child Support Agency.

Victim of domestic violence?

If you need urgent protection from your partner, the Court can make an injunction order to give you protection. Ruth Harbottle and Rosemary Asquith have succeeded in obtaining such protective orders at extremely short notice for hundreds of clients over the past few years. They are experienced and speedy, when what you need is experience and speed!

No maintenance?
Who gets the house?
Is my pension safe?
How will I survive financially?

You need to know where you will stand financially and what your rights are before you can negotiate any agreement with your partner about who gets what. We can assist you in this whether through mediation or the Courts.

You may be eligible for Legal Help or Legal Aid to cover your costs. If you think you might be, please click here to link you to our page which covers legal aid and legal help eligibility.
