What is Divorce?

Divorce refers to the legal termination of a marriage or marital union. In other words, it is the formal ending of marital union.

The divorce process is emotionally difficult, really complicated and stressful for each person involved, particularly if there are several disputed areas like existing financial commitments, custody of children and the distribution of assets.

Due to the complexity of the divorce process, getting divorce advice from experienced solicitors can make the process easier to manage, both practically and emotionally.
