Divorce

Our Cardiff divorce solicitors understand how difficult it can be when a family faces division. If this is becoming a reality for you, our specialist team are here to help; ready to listen and guide you through what is likely to be one of the most trying times of your life.

The major concerns of someone thinking about getting divorced will often arise from the misconception that involving family law solicitors will complicate matters unnecessarily and cost too much.

At Martyn Prowel Solicitors we take a sympathetic and pragmatic approach to divorce. Our aim is to help clients regain control over their lives by working together with them to find a way forward which suits their particular circumstances. The divorce process itself can be relatively straightforward. There is only one ground for divorce and that is that the marriage has broken down irretrievably. In order to prove this to the court, one of five facts must be proven. The two most common are ‘Unreasonable Behaviour’ and ‘Adultery’ but in the event of you having separated for 2 years or more and your spouse agreeing to divorce, this would be sufficient for the court to grant your divorce.

Divorce Proceedings do not have to be complex and can be dealt with by neither party having to attend court. Furthermore, in spite of the two most common facts being on a fault basis, it is still possible for Divorces to proceed amicably.

In fact our Head of Department, Rachel Davies is a collaboratively trained solicitor which means that clients have the option of conducting their case in such a way as to minimise the hostility and distress which can often accompany the breakdown of a marriage and subsequent divorce.

We understand the need to deal with your Divorce as quickly with as little fuss as possible. Please contact a member of our team for an urgent appointment, or email us and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
