Divorce

The collapse of a marriage can be an upsetting, emotional and confusing time. Our expert and experienced solicitors can help make it easier for you.

At Rubin Lewis O’Brien our divorce specialists can deal with everything for you and help to make the process easier to understand and offer experienced legal support. Rubin Lewis O’Brien offers superb negotiating skills, technical excellence, expertise and sensitivity.

Divorce law had a major change this year, with the introduction of no-fault divorce. The previous law was that a marriage has to have irretrievably broken down (no change there) and one of the spouses has to blame the other (here are the big changes) whether because of their behaviour or adultery or there has to be a period of separation of either two or five years and if a two year separation there is an additional hurdle that the other spouse has to consent to the divorce.  The new system also removes the ability for one of the spouses to contest a divorce. The new law will simply be that the divorce is requested because the marriage has irretrievably broken down without having to show wrongdoing by the other or a period living apart.  There can even be a joint application for the Divorce Order.
