Divorce needn’t be difficult…

We understand the difficulties which come with divorce and family separation, so we strive to make the divorce process as simple and easy as 1.2.3.™; that’s why we deal with all the paperwork, so you can continue with your everyday life, relaxed in the knowledge that you’re in safe hands.

We offer 4 types of services

divorce

Our comprehensive fixed-fee packages offer a simple and convenient way to dissolve your marriage/civil partnership. We offer both Petitioner and Respondent packages to assist couples who are wishing to proceed on an uncontested basis.

money

Separation from your partner requires not only a legal resolution, but also a financial one. There are serious pitfalls if you fail to protect yourself and your finances/assets post divorce/separation. We are here to guide and protect you from any future unforeseen complications.

children

Children are your most precious assets. It is vital that following a separation their wishes and feelings are paramount and their welfare protected from unnecessary animosity. Our packages are designed to offer support and guidance to reach an arrangement to suit and
benefit the whole family.

agreements

It’s our goal to encourage couples to protect their family and provide long term stability. We recommend a pre- or post-nuptial agreement for intended/married couples and a cohabitation agreement for those who are unmarried. We can also prepare a comprehensive separation agreement for those not wishing to divorce at this time.
