Video: Divorce, your commonly asked legal questions answered

To provide simple, clear answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about divorce, we asked our resident expert Divorce & Family solicitor Justine Woodcock to explain in our new short video.

The video lays out the essentials of the grounds for divorce, the usual length of divorce proceedings, how we can assist with the division of finances, and whether your case would require court intervention.

Among her answers, Justine offers insight into our own legal approach, and how we consider our clients’ situations. “Wherever possible, we try not to get the clients involved in court processes and will try to resolve things as amicably as we can”, she says, “Court is very much a last resort but unfortunately sometimes clients can’t agree things directly.”

The video follows our Divorce Advice blog series, which explores three common concerns in divorce proceedings. The three posts can be found here:
