Divorce Law

sofaBrighton & Hove Law specialise in divorce matters and we advise both husbands and wives in formal divorce proceedings offering  a cost effective alternative to large law firms.

The decision to end a marriage is a serious one.

We will deal with your matter sensitively and provide you with support and guidance throughout the process.

If you receive correspondence from your spouses solicitor or receive divorce papers, do not ignore them.

Specialist family solicitors can help alleviate the stress and once instructed can receive papers from the Court on your behalf.


To initiate divorce proceedings you must have been married for at least a year and your marriage must have irretrievably broken down with there being no prospect of reconciliation.

We will work with you to gather all of the relevant information, prepare and issue the petition, and advise you on all of the issues that need to be considered when getting divorced including aspects relating to finances and children.

The divorce procedure takes between four and six months but may take longer if issues with finances need to be resolved.

It is usual for financial issues to be dealt with within the divorce proceedings, as it may include the marital home and other assets of the marriage.

Provided the divorce is not contested we can represent  you in divorce proceedings for a fixed fee.
