Shortlands

Separation Solicitors

Shortlands also specialize in legal separation from your spouse should you not wish to divorce for social or religious reasons.

 

The procedure for a separation and the facts to rely on are the same as a divorce – see Grounds for Divorce and Procedure for an Agreed Divorce.

 

At the end of separation proceedings, you remain married, which means that there can be no final financial settlement, although an interim settlement can be agreed or sought.
