Divorce Law Solicitors Serving Sidcup, Bexley and Kent
We understand that going through a divorce can be stressful and emotional for everyone involved, even when it's amicable. We also know how complicated the legal processes involved in ending your marriage can seem at what is already a difficult time.
This may be the first time you have been involved in court proceedings or have had to work with a lawyer, so our aim is to ensure that you feel comfortable with us and that we can provide clear, impartial and understandable advice to you for every stage of your divorce.
We offer a free initial appointment, so please call 020 8300 9321 or send us an email to book your appointment.
Your situation is unique to you, so we will agree with you what your priorities are and help you plan for the future in a way that protects your short-term and long-term interests. As well as helping you to initiate or respond to divorce proceedings, we can also help you with making a financial settlement and arrangements for children.
Where substantial property and assets are involved, we are experienced at unravelling the legal and financial ties between the parties, including dealing with complex financial arrangements including bank accounts, investments, property, trusts, business and pensions.
While our divorce lawyers can typically resolve most matters related to divorce amicably without the need for court proceedings, we do have extensive court experience and will seek to ensure swift progress through the court process, where possible.

Our divorce law services
What to expect at your free initial appointment
This is your opportunity to explain your situation and what you want to achieve, as well as any specific concerns you have, for example, over what will happen to your home or where your children will live.
We will then talk you through your legal options and the various approaches we can take, such as using mediation to achieve a settlement with your ex-partner. We will explain the advantages of these approaches and give you a clear indication of the likely costs involved.
Assisting you through the divorce process
We can help you to prepare and submit a divorce petition or respond to a petition from your spouse. By ensuring the relevant forms are filled out fully and accurately, we can minimise the chances of any delays.
We can also advise you on what reasons to cite for the divorce in your petition, helping to reduce the likelihood of your spouse objecting to the divorce or cross-petitioning, which can result in costly and time-consuming divorce proceedings.
Making a financial settlement
We can advise you on the various options for reaching a financial settlement, with a strong focus on achieving an amicable agreement with your former partner wherever possible.
However, thanks to our strong court experience, we can ensure you are able to achieve a fair settlement in even the most complex and contentious cases, no matter what approach is required.
Making arrangements for children
We realise that what happens with your children is often the most emotionally challenging issue during divorce and separation. Our divorce lawyers take a sensitive approach to finding the right solution for you and your children, with a strong track record of achieving positive outcomes that protect the rights of parents and the wellbeing of children.
