Seeking early and clear legal advice upon your options and what lies ahead can be enormously helpful in navigating what can seem to be a maze filled with doubts, obstacles and perhaps fear.

At Watson Ramsbottom, we recognise that guidance and support throughout your divorce journey is critical. Our team has vast experience dealing with individuals seeking or facing a divorce and we regularly act for victims of domestic abuse and coercive control.

With the introduction of ‘no-fault divorce’ in April 2022, it is now the case that divorce is less adversarial and this is no doubt a good thing. However, not every divorce can or will be straightforward. We can inform you as to likely issues that may make your divorce more challenging than others and offer effective, practical solutions to avoid stress and delay.

We also appreciate that the costs of a divorce are a concern for many.  At Watson Ramsbottom we offer a fixed fee for the vast majority of clients seeking or responding to a divorce. We can also advise on whether you might be entitled to a reduction or exemption from the court fees for commencing a divorce, potentially saving you hundreds of pounds.

Many individuals hesitate when it comes to commencing a divorce, believing that their legal position may not actually improve as a result.

Equally, there are those who rush ahead to complete a divorce without being aware of the adverse consequences that can arise from completing a divorce without fully addressing financial matters first.

Having a full understanding of where you stand can be invaluable.
