Divorce and COVID-19- We are here to Help

The Covid 19 pandemic has proved a tipping point for many relationships, cracks have become chasms as couples have been forced to stay together 24/7. The pandemic has brought many couples together but for others, it has brought the relationship to an end. We received many calls during this period from desperate people. Fortunately, the restrictions are now being lifted and people can move forward.

What can you do now?

We can help. We can offer support and guidance during this difficult time. You are still able to dissolve your marriage and there is no need for you to attend court to do this. We can apply for divorces online.

Issues regarding the finances and children are still being dealt with by the courts mostly via telephone hearings., Skype teams or other platforms.

During the lockdown, we have closed our offices to the public but all of our staff are able to safely and securely work from home. Some of us are working from the office as the restrictions have been eased. Nothing has changed to our service, you can still call to talk to our friendly team. 

We can have meetings via Zoom as well which are extremely helpful in achieving that personal touch. Be rest assured we are picking up all of your web enquiries and emails.  All post is scanned and emailed to us daily.

We are here and ready to give you sound advice and support while you get the process started. 

Our solicitors have a wealth of experience and can provide you with the best advice to guide you through this difficult time.
