We appreciate that it’s never easy coming to the decision that a marriage or long-term relationship has come to an end. At Penderlaw we understand how overwhelming dealing with practicalities in the wake of a relationship breakdown can be and we are here to help.

Please note : We are unable to act in public childcare matters (i.e. where social services or the Local Authority are involved).



It can be difficult in Family Law to be precise about timescales as there are many factors outside of our control e.g. efficiency of the other side, the Court, experts etc.  However, the blog below may at least help you to understand the main stages in the Divorce process.
