Punam Denley talks about Divorce & Separation

Going through a divorce is one of the most stressful events of a person’s life. A divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage. The end of a relationship can have devastating impacts on the whole family, but seeking early legal advice can help make the process as smooth as possible.

At Blanchards Law we try and give clients the most cost-effective and direct route, whether you initiate divorce proceedings (as the petitioner) or are on the receiving end of them. Our empathetic team will listen to your concerns and provide clear, honest advice to get you as close to where you want to be as possible.

Grounds for divorce

There is only one ground for divorce and that is that the marriage has broken down irretrievably. To satisfy the court that there has been an irretrievable breakdown, the Petitioner must prove one of the five facts: adultery, unreasonable behaviour, desertion, two years separation with consent and five years separation without consent. It is important to rely on the correct fact in your divorce petition otherwise the court may return this to you.

Legal Separation

Perhaps you only wish for a ‘Legal Separation’ and to draw up an amicable financial settlement and we can help draft this up for you. We will advise you on the best way to formalise your divorce or separation and also discuss with you the welfare and arrangements of the children of your relationship.

We are mediators and collaborative lawyers so are well versed in alternative dispute resolution which can protect you from the harsh realities of the court-based adversarial system.
