Divorce and Dissolution of Civil Partnerships

We recognise that making the decision to end a marriage or civil partnership is one of the most difficult decisions a person may have to make and we aim to support and guide you through the process whilst providing frank, clear and objective legal advice. Our family team have the skill and experience in handling such sensitive matters with discretion and expertise. We aim to conclude matters as swiftly as possible in a non-confrontational manner where appropriate.

Royds advise clients on the most suitable fact to rely upon in the petition and most divorces and dissolutions are concluded in a straightforward and uncontested basis without the need to attend court.

We act for clients who require advice in relation to which jurisdiction would be the most appropriate one to issue proceedings in and guide them through that process. We have considerable expertise in the international aspects of divorce and often, it is necessary to take prompt action to ensure a petition is issued in the correct jurisdiction/forum.
