When your relationship breaks down it is never easy, but we are here to help you through the Divorce process and get you to the place you now want to be.
Whether you are just at the stage of thinking about divorce or dissolution of civil partnership and wanting some initial advice or you’re in need of a lawyer to represent you, we offer a range of services to help to support the stage you’re at.
At Blossom Law, we aim to deal with divorces or dissolution of civil partnerships as amicably as possible. We do so by seeking to agree the contents of the Divorce Petition with your spouse or civil partner before any formal action is taken. Even in the most difficult of cases, it will be very unlikely that you will be required to attend Court.
Divorce also covers a vast range of circumstances – from everything being completely agreed through to, sadly, quite bitter and acrimonious court proceedings. Our divorce lawyers are experts and can help whatever your position.
There has been a shift in recent times to achieve an acceptable divorce outcome outside of the court system. If a settlement can be agreed outside of court, not only is it likely to be quicker but both parties are likely to remain on cordial and constructive terms after the separation, which is important when children are involved.
A No Fault Divorce allows couples to leave their marriage without having to use one of the five facts to prove your marriage has ‘irretrievably broken down’, you can simply make a declaration together saying that it has.
No-Fault Divorce process
- A couple apply for a divorce individually or together. This means they can choose to make a statement together explaining their marriage has irretrievably broken down. They don’t need to explain why.
- A period of 20 weeks will apply as a ‘cooling off period’.
- After 20 weeks and the couple are still looking to proceed, a Conditional Order is granted by the court. At this point you can now file a financial consent order with the court following the Condition Order being granted and (if you are having one) the financial order sealed (agreed) you can apply for your final divorce order.
- A 6-week period.
- After the 6 weeks is over a Final Order is made by the court.
- The minimum length of time to get a No-Fault Divorce will be 6 months.
Absolute pleasure to deal with. Efficient service, professional conduct and record turnaround time. I will highly recommend Blossom Law to anyone looking for a firm to handle their property purchase. Thank you Oye and Charlotte!
In our recent move from Roundways to Keynsham we found the professional service we received from Blossom law was of a very high standard from the team, especially from Shennell Richards and Oye Edokpolor. We were kept informed regularly by email and phone of any progress being made with our move and sale. We always found the staff very helpful, professional and polite. We would be very happy to recommend Blossom Law for any future transactions, especially with the sale and purchase of property.
Had a lovely experience while using Blossom Law. Always approachable when needed. Can't fault anything. Will be using you all again for sure. Thanks for all your help and making the sale so easy and effortless.
We found the level of service from Shennell and all at Blossom Law Solicitors outstanding and I would have no trouble in recommending them to anyone. Shennell is a highly efficient individual, replying to every query and email within hours if not minutes which we appreciated as we were one of several buyers in a chain. I’d be more than happy to recommend to anyone to use Blossom Law and Shennell in particular. All in all the usually stressful experience of house buying was smooth and straightforward.
We were very happy with the service you provided during the sale of our late mother's house. We found that the Blossom Law team were responsive, efficient and good value.
I highly recommend this company! They have been helpful and forthcoming always! Great service and friendly members!
We had a very good experience with this firm when selling a house. Communication was good and the staff were friendly and approachable. Thank you, Ketsia and everyone at Blossom Law Solicitors.
Charlotte has been super-efficient in communication and service to our company. I have been running an estate agent for the pass 8 Years and I have not come a across any conveyance solicitors that have had us agents best of interest. I would be recommending Charlotte in the future to our clients for sure.
The service I received from Blossom Law was efficient and stress-free, I felt like Shennell was really on the ball and pushed me for information rather than the other way around which kept things moving smoothly.
5 stars. Very Happy.
Excellent professionalism, always keeping us updated on the process of the sale of our property. Friendly, always available to answer, clarify any queries we may have had. We could not have been happier with your service.
I was very pleased with how Blossom Law Solicitors handled the sale of my property. I received regular emails informing me of how the sale was going and any issues were resolved quickly. They were friendly and professional regarding every aspect of the sale, and I completed on the day that was agreed with no problems. I would highly recommend them.
