Divorce

Application for Divorce – This means that you are looking to dissolve your marriage.

It is a common misconception that upon the irretrievable breakdown of a marriage, parties need “Divorce Lawyers” or “Divorce Solicitors”, those being the common terms used. The general use of the word “Divorce” is not exactly what the Family Court formally terms as a “Divorce” and Divorce is only one facet of family law.

If you do need assistance with an Application for Divorce, it may also be possible that you are looking for assistance in a property settlement, financial settlement, child support and in looking after your childrens’ needs.
