3. AMD Solicitors Bristol - Legal Advice
When a marriage breaks down it can be an extremely painful experience. We offer sympathetic advice together with practical solutions.

Every divorce is started by a "petition". The Court must be satisfied that the marriage is at an end and the expression the Court will use is that the marriage has "irretrievably broken down". The Court will accept one or more of the following grounds as proof:

that your husband or wife has committed adultery
that your husband or wife has behaved in such a way that you cannot reasonably be expected to live with them
that your husband or wife deserted you at least 2 years ago
that you and your husband or wife have lived apart for a continuous period of at least 2 years and he or she agrees to a divorce
that you and your husband or wife have lived apart for at least 5 years.

We were set up in the 1950's as one of the first firms in Bristol outside the City Centre. We are proud of our traditional values of courtesy and efficiency. Our offices in Westbury Park, Henleaze and Shirehampton are each conveniently located close to local shops, with free on-street parking.

4. Alan Hodge Solicitors, Divorce
Most divorce proceedings are undefended. These proceedings can generally go through the courts fairly quickly unless problems arise. There are court fees involved.

A straight forward case follows (with no children involved) the following course:

Petition issued and served by the Court

Respondent replies to the Petition

Petitioner swears an affidavit (sworn document) in support of the Petition and sends it to the Court

A District Judge issues a certificate saying that the Petitioner is entitled to Decree Nisi

Decree Nisi pronounced in Open Court

6 weeks (+1 day) later the Petitioner can apply for Decree Absolute.

Being divorced does not necessarily mean that everything else has been resolved. Issues often arise over children and money. These are the issue that can be the cause of delays and expense.

It is wise to choose a solicitor who will not act like a Gladiator. This generally leads to more expense and acrimony.

At this firm we consider that what we have to offer is essentially a high quality reasonably priced service to all our clients. We are all aware that reputations are hard won and easily lost. We work very hard to maintain our reputation Our best yardstick as to the effectiveness of our services is your response to the way in which we provide those services.

5. Barcan Woodward Solicitors
Barcan Woodward is a 5 partner firm of Solicitors based in 3 offices in Bristol, England. One office is in the City Centre within easy reach of Bristol Temple Meads railway station, and the M5 and M4 motorways, via the M32. Our Bedminster office serves the South of the City, while the Horfield office provides good access for people in the North of Bristol.

Divorce is dealt with largely through the post and there is normally no need for anyone to go to court. In most cases it will take no more than 3 months from the date on which the forms are sent to court.

Our approach is to make the process as straightforward and amicable as possible in what are, inevitably, difficult circumstances. If possible we agree the wording used in the forms with your partner so that there are no shocks which can create bitterness.

Whilst ending the marriage is always an important event for you, in a lot of cases it is the consequences of the divorce - the arrangements for children and the financial arrangements - that take on the greater significance.
