Divorce or Civil Partnership Dissolution

When a relationship breaks down, divorce or dissolution may be the only solution. We understand this is a major decision and we will provide full advice and support on the practical arrangements that will need to be made, both with your spouse/partner and any children involved.

Here at Rix & Kay, our Family Team has expertise in representing clients throughout the divorce process, however complex or difficult, whether you are initiating or responding to a divorce or dissolution Petition.

Typically the process can take between 8-10 months. In some cases it might take longer, for example, if there are issues to be dealt with concerning children, finances and/or property. This is only an estimate and will very much depend on the circumstances of each case.
