Our Family Law Services

What is Divorce?


Divorce is a legal process that terminates a marriage between two individuals. In England and Wales, you can only apply to the court for a divorce if you have been married for at least one year. The decision to end a marriage is never easy, but when a relationship has irretrievably broken down, divorce may be the only option to legally move forward.


Grounds for Divorce


In England and Wales, there is only one ground for divorce: the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. To prove this, the petitioner (the person initiating the divorce) must demonstrate one of the following five facts:

  1. Adultery: The respondent (the other spouse) has committed adultery, and the petitioner finds it intolerable to live with them.
  2. Unreasonable behavior: The respondent has behaved in such a way that the petitioner cannot reasonably be expected to live with them.
  3. Desertion: The respondent has deserted the petitioner for a continuous period of at least two years.
  4. Two years’ separation with consent: The couple has been living apart for at least two years, and both parties agree to the divorce.
  5. Five years’ separation: The couple has been living apart for at least five years, even if one party does not consent to the divorce.

At Adel Jibs & Co Solicitors, our experienced divorce solicitors in London understand the emotional and legal complexities involved in ending a marriage. We are committed to providing compassionate, practical advice and support throughout the divorce process, ensuring that your rights and interests are protected every step of the way.


Our comprehensive divorce services include:


  1. Preparing and filing all necessary divorce documentation with the court.
  2. Advising you on the most appropriate grounds for divorce based on your unique circumstances.
  3. Representing you in court proceedings, if necessary negotiating financial settlements and property division.
  4. Assisting with child custody and visitation arrangements.
  5. Offering mediation and collaborative law services to minimise conflict and promote amicable resolutions.
  6. The Divorce Process: Decree Nisi and Decree Absolute

The divorce process in England and Wales involves two key stages: the Decree Nisi and the Decree Absolute.


Decree Nisi


This is the first stage of the divorce process. Our solicitors will provide the necessary documentation to the court to demonstrate that the grounds for divorce have been sufficiently proven. If the court is satisfied, it will pronounce the Decree Nisi.


Decree Absolute


This is the final stage of the divorce. Six weeks after the Decree Nisi is granted, our solicitors can apply for the Decree Absolute on your behalf. Once the Decree Absolute is issued, your marriage is legally ended. We typically recommend waiting until any outstanding financial issues are resolved before applying for the Decree Absolute to protect your interests.


Why Seek Early Legal Advice?


If you are considering divorce, it is crucial to seek early legal advice from a specialist divorce solicitor. Failure to do so may limit your options and negatively impact the outcome of your case. At Adel Jibs & Co Solicitors, we recommend speaking with us as soon as possible to ensure that you understand your rights and can make informed decisions about your future.


Our Approach to Divorce


We recognise that divorce can be an emotionally challenging and stressful experience. That’s why we strive to minimize the anguish and conflict associated with the process. Our team supports alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation and collaborative law, which aim to keep discussions non-confrontational and focused on finding mutually beneficial solutions.

However, when necessary, our divorce solicitors are prepared to assertively represent your interests in court. We have extensive experience handling complex and high-value divorce cases, and we will work tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family.
